Subject: [PATCH AUTOSEL 5.4 02/40] sched/fair: Fix NOHZ next idle balance

From: Vincent Guittot <vincent.guittot@...aro.org>

[ Upstream commit 3ea2f097b17e13a8280f1f9386c331b326a3dbef ]

With commit:
  'b7031a02ec75 ("sched/fair: Add NOHZ_STATS_KICK")'
rebalance_domains of the local cfs_rq happens before others idle cpus have
updated nohz.next_balance and its value is overwritten.

Move the update of nohz.next_balance for other idles cpus before balancing
and updating the next_balance of local cfs_rq.

Also, the nohz.next_balance is now updated only if all idle cpus got a
chance to rebalance their domains and the idle balance has not been aborted
because of new activities on the CPU. In case of need_resched, the idle
load balance will be kick the next jiffie in order to address remaining
ilb.
