Subject: [PATCH RFC 5/5] sched/fair: remove impossible condition from find_idlest_group_cpu

find_idlest_group_cpu goes through CPUs of a group previous selected by
find_idlest_group. find_idlest_group returns NULL if the local group is the
selected one and doesn't execute find_idlest_group_cpu if the group to which
'cpu' belongs to is chosen. So we're always guaranteed to call
find_idlest_group_cpu with a group to which cpu is non-local. This makes one of
the conditions in find_idlest_group_cpu an impossible one, which we can get rid
off.
