Subject: [PATCH tip] [PATCH]sched/fair: Fix endless loop in idle_balance()

This patch must go on top of the series:

[tip 1/2] sched/fair: Push down check for high priority class task into idle_balance()
[tip 2/2] sched/core: Fix endless loop in pick_next_task()

Check for fair tasks number to decide, that we've pulled a task.
rq's nr_running may contain throttled RT tasks.

Peter, this finaly fixes problem with RT throttling.
Should I send all three patches as one series?
