Subject: [RFC PATCH V2 13/19] sched: packing transitory tasks in wakeup
 power balancing

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

If the waked task is transitory enough, it will has a chance to be
packed into a cpu which is busy but still has time to care it.

For powersaving policy, only the history util < 25% task has chance to
be packed. If there is no cpu eligible to handle it, will use a idlest
cpu in leader group.

Morten Rasmussen catch a type bug. And PeterZ reminder to consider
rt_util. thanks you!
