Subject: [RFC PATCH V2 10/19] sched: detect wakeup burst with rq->avg_idle

From: Alex Shi <alex.shi@...el.com>

rq->avg_idle is 'to used to accommodate bursty loads in a dirt simple
dirt cheap manner' -- Mike Galbraith.

With this cheap and smart bursty indicator, we can find the wake up
burst, and just use nr_running as instant utilization only.

The 'sysctl_sched_burst_threshold' used for wakeup burst, set it as
double of sysctl_sched_migration_cost.
