Subject: [PATCH v2] sched/deadline: overrun could happen in start_hrtick_dl

It could be wrong for the precision of runtime and deadline
when the precision is within microsecond level. For example:
Task runtime deadline period
 P1   200us   500us   500us

This case need enbale HRTICK feature by the next command
PC#echo "HRTICK" > /sys/kernel/debug/sched_features
PC#trace-cmd record -e sched_switch &
PC#./schedtool -E -t 200000:500000 -e ./test

Some of runtime and deadline run with millisecond level by
reading kernershark. Some pieces of trace.dat are as follows:
(remove some irrelevant information)
<idle>-0   157.603157: sched_switch: :R ==> 2481:4294967295: test
test-2481  157.603203: sched_switch:  2481:R ==> 0:120: swapper/2
<idle>-0   157.605657: sched_switch:  :R ==> 2481:4294967295: test
test-2481  157.608183: sched_switch:  2481:R ==> 2483:120: trace-cmd
trace-cmd-2483 157.609656: sched_switch:2483:R==>2481:4294967295: test

We can get the runtime from the information at some point.
runtime = 157.605657 - 157.608183
runtime = 0.002526(2.526ms)
The correct runtime should be less than or equal to 200us at some point.

The problem is caused by a conditional judgment "delta > 10000".
Because no hrtimer start up to control the runtime when runtime is less than 10us.
So the process will continue to run until tick-period coming.

Move the code with the limit of the least time slice
from hrtick_start_fair() to hrtick_start() because
EDF schedule class also need this function in start_hrtick_dl().

To fix this problem, we call hrtimer_start() unconditionally in start_hrtick_dl(),
and make sure schedule slice won't be smaller than 10us in hrtimer_start().
