SubjectRe: [RFC PATCH 00/13] Core scheduling v5

Its probably time for an iteration and We are planning to post v6 based
on this branch:

Just wanted to share the details about v6 here before posting the patch
series. If there is no objection to the following, we shall be posting
the v6 early next week.

The main changes from v6 are the following:
1. Address Peter's comments in v5
- Code cleanup
- Remove fixes related to hotplugging.
- Split the patch out for force idling starvation
3. Fix for RCU deadlock
4. core wide priority comparison minor re-work.
5. IRQ Pause patch
6. Documentation

This version is much leaner compared to v5 due to the removal of hotplug
support. As a result, dynamic coresched enable/disable on cpus due to
smt on/off on the core do not function anymore. I tried to reproduce the
crashes during hotplug, but could not reproduce reliably. The plan is to
try to reproduce the crashes with v6, and document each corner case for crashes
as we fix those. Previously, we randomly fixed the issues without a clear
documentation and the fixes became complex over time.

TODO lists:

- Interface discussions could not come to a conclusion in v5 and hence would
like to restart the discussion and reach a consensus on it.

- Core wide vruntime calculation needs rework:

- Load balancing/migration changes ignores group weights:

Please have a look and let me know comments/suggestions or anything missed.
