Subject[RFCv2 4/6] sched/fair: Define core capacity to limit task packing
Date
The task packing on a core needs to be bounded based on its capacity. This
patch defines a new method which acts as a tipping point for task packing.

The Core capacity is the method which limits task packing above certain
point. In general, the capacity of a core is defined to be the aggregated
sum of all the CPUs in the Core.

Some architectures does not have core capacity linearly increasing with the
number of threads( or CPUs) in the core. For such cases, architecture
specific calculations needs to be done to find core capacity.

The `arch_scale_core_capacity` is currently tuned for `powerpc` arch by
scaling capacity w.r.t to the number of online SMT in the core.

The patch provides default handler for other architecture by scaling core
capacity w.r.t. to the capacity of all the threads in the core.

ToDo: SMT mode is calculated each time a jitter task wakes up leading to
redundant decision time which can be eliminated by keeping track of online
CPUs during hotplug task.
