sched: Reduce update_group_power() calls

Currently we update cpu_power() too often, update_group_power() only
updates the local group's cpu_power but it gets called for all groups.

Furthermore, CPU_NEWLY_IDLE invocations will result in all cpus
calling it, even though a slow update of cpu_power is sufficient.

Therefore move the update under 'idle != CPU_NEWLY_IDLE &&
local_group' to reduce superfluous invocations.
