Subject: [RFC v3 PATCH 6/7] sched: Rebalance cfs runtimes

sched: CFS runtime borrowing

From: Bharata B Rao <bharata@...ux.vnet.ibm.com>

Before throttling a group, try to borrow runtime from groups that have excess.

To start with, a group will get equal runtime on every cpu. If the group doesn't
have tasks on all cpus, it might get throttled on some cpus while it still has
runtime left on other cpus where it doesn't have any tasks to consume that
runtime. Hence there is a chance to borrow runtimes from such cpus/cfs_rqs to
cpus/cfs_rqs where it is required.
