Subject: [PATCH v2 2/2] sched/deadline: Change the way to replenish runtime for sleep tasks

Let's consider the following example.

timeline : o...................o.........o.......o..o
           ^                   ^         ^       ^  ^
           |                   |         |       |  |
       start                   |         |       |  |
                original runtime         |       |  |
                     sleep with (-)runtime       |  |
                                 original deadline  |
                                              wake up

When this task is woken up, a negative runtime should be considered,
which means that the task should get penalized when assigning runtime,
becasue it already spent more than expected.

Current code handles this by replenishing a runtime in hrtimer callback
for deadline. But this approach has room for improvement in two ways:

   1. No need to keep the hrtimer for a sleep task because it can be
      handled when waking it up.

   2. It will be replenished twice unnecessarily if the task sleeps for
      long time so that the deadline, assigned in the hrtimer callback,
      also passed. In other words, one happens in the callback and the
      other happens in update_dl_entiry() when waking it up.

So try to cancel the hrtimer for a sleep task and make all these things
handled when waking it up.
