This came up during a private discussion with Joel and thanks to
him for bringing this up! Details below..

A newly created task will not be enqueued and hence do we need this

Do we need this here? Soon after this, wake_up_new_task() is called
which will ultimately call enqueue_task() and adds the task to the
coresched rbtree. So we will be trying to enqueue twice. Also, this
code will not really enqueue, because task_on_rq_queued() would
return false at this point(activate_task is not yet called for this
new task).

I am not sure if I missed any other code path reaching here that
does not proceed with wake_up_new_task().Please let me know, if I
missed anything here.
