sched: Make sure task has correct sched_class after policy change

>From the code in rt_mutex_setprio(), it is evident that the
intention is that task's with a RT 'prio' value as a consequence
of receiving a PI boost also have their 'sched_class' field set
to '&rt_sched_class'.

However, Peter noticed that the code in __setscheduler() could
result in this intention being frustrated. Fix it.
