Subject[PATCH 8/8] sched/fair: Relax task_hot() for misfit tasks
Date
Misfit tasks can and will be preempted by the stopper to migrate them over
to a higher-capacity CPU. However, when runnable but not current misfit
tasks are scanned by the load balancer (i.e. detach_tasks()), the
task_hot() ratelimiting logic may prevent us from enqueuing said task onto
a higher-capacity CPU.

Align detach_tasks() with the active-balance logic and let it pick a
cache-hot misfit task when the destination CPU can provide a capacity
uplift.
