Subject: [PATCH 4/5] sched/fair: Remove double_lock_balance() from
 active_load_balance_cpu_stop()


Bad situation:

double_lock_balance() drops busiest_rq lock. The busiest_rq is *busiest*,
and a lot of tasks and context switches there. We are dropping the lock
and waiting for it again.

Let's just detach the task and once finally unlock it!

Warning: this admits unlocked using of can_migrate_task(), throttled_lb_pair(),
and task_hot(). I added comments about that.
