Per our discussion on v1, the asym check was intentionally omitted, the
assumption being: we'd be putting p back on its prev CPU, its utilization
cannot be bigger now than it was then so it should still pass the capacity
fitness criterion (unless we dequeued it right before crossing the next
PELT window boundary would have made it cross the tipping point...)

Uclamp goes against this, p's uclamp.min can completely change between its
dequeue and wakeup, which warrants adding the check.

I'd like to see (at least some of) the above in the changelog, but
pedantism aside:
