Subject: [PATCH 4/8] Extract load calculation from rebalance_tick

Extract load calculation from rebalance_tick

A load calculation is always done in rebalance_tick() in addition
to the real load balancing activities that only take place when certain
jiffie counts have been reached. Move that processing into a separate
function and call it directly from scheduler_tick().

Also extract the time slice handling from scheduler_tick and
put it into a separate function. Then we can clean up scheduler_tick
significantly. It will no longer have any gotos.
