Subject: [PATCH 2/3] sched/core: handle overflow in cpu_shares_write_u64

Bit shift in scale_load() could overflow shares. This patch saturates
it to MAX_SHARES like following sched_group_set_shares().

Example:
# echo 9223372036854776832 > cpu.shares
# cat cpu.shares

Before patch: 1024
After pattch: 262144
