Subject: [PATCH v4 3/5] sched/deadline: Change return value of cpudl_find()

Currently cpudl_find() returns the best cpu that means it has the
maximum dl, however, the value is already kept in later_mask and the
return value is not referred directly any more.

Now, it's enough to return whether CPUs were found or not, like rt.
