sched: Fix the rq->next_balance logic in rebalance_domains() and idle_balance()

Currently, in idle_balance(), we update rq->next_balance when we pull_tasks.
However, it is also important to update this in the !pulled_tasks case too.

When the CPU is "busy" (the CPU isn't idle), rq->next_balance gets computed
using sd->busy_factor (so we increase the balance interval when the CPU is
busy). However, when the CPU goes idle, rq->next_balance could still be set
to a large value that was computed with the sd->busy_factor.

Thus, we need to also update rq->next_balance in idle_balance() in the cases
where !pulled_tasks too, so that rq->next_balance gets updated without taking
the busy_factor into account when the CPU is about to go idle.

This patch makes rq->next_balance get updated independently of whether or
not we pulled_task. Also, we add logic to ensure that we always traverse
at least 1 of the sched domains to get a proper next_balance value for
updating rq->next_balance.

Additionally, since load_balance() modifies the sd->balance_interval, we
need to re-obtain the sched domain's interval after the call to
load_balance() in rebalance_domains() before we update rq->next_balance.

This patch adds and uses 2 new helper functions, update_next_balance() and
get_sd_balance_interval() to update next_balance and obtain the sched
domain's balance_interval.
