Yes, sched_core_enabled works properly when CONFIG_SCHED_CORE is not
enabled. But when CONFIG_SCHED_CORE is not enabled, it does not make
sense to leave a core scheduler specific function here even at compile
time. Also, for the cases in hot path, this saves CPU cycles to avoid
a judgment.

Yes, if there is a VCPU was preempted on this CPU, better not place task
on this core as the VCPU may be holding a spinlock and wants to be executed
again ASAP.
