Subject: [RFC PATCH V2 11/19] sched: add power aware scheduling in
 fork/exec/wake

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

This patch add power aware scheduling in fork/exec/wake. It try to
select cpu from the busiest while still has utilization group. That's
will save power since it leaves more groups idle in system.

The trade off is adding a power aware statistics collection in group
seeking. But since the collection just happened in power scheduling
eligible condition, the worst case of hackbench testing just drops
about 2% with powersaving policy. No clear change for performance
policy.

The main function in this patch is get_cpu_for_power_policy(), that
will try to get a idlest cpu from the busiest while still has
utilization group, if the system is using power aware policy and
has such group.
