sched/fair: Avoid redundant EAS calculation

The EAS wake-up path computes the system energy for several CPU
candidates: the CPU with maximum spare capacity in each performance
domain, and the prev_cpu. However, if prev_cpu also happens to be the
CPU with maximum spare capacity in its performance domain, the energy
calculation is still done twice, unnecessarily.

Add a condition to filter out this corner case before doing the energy
calculation.
