Hi Joonsoo,

We noticed the below changes for commit 23f0d2093c ("sched: Factor out
code to should_we_balance()") in test vm-scalability/300s-lru-file-readtwice

              9427 ~ 0%      -5.8%       8880 ~ 0%  time.percent_of_cpu_this_job_got

The test case basically does

for i in `seq 1 $nr_cpu`
do      
        create_sparse_file huge-$i
        dd if=huge-$i of=/dev/null &
        dd if=huge-$i of=/dev/null &
done

where nr_cpu=120 (test box is a 4-socket ivybridge system).

The change looks stable, each point below is a sample run:

                               vm-scalability.stddev
