Any reason this is under an #ifdef? In sched_core_cookie_match() won't
the check for sched_core_enabled() do the right thing even when
CONFIG_SCHED_CORE is not enabed?

I was looking at this snippet and comparing this to is_core_idle(), the
major difference is the check for vcpu_is_preempted(). Do we want to
call the core as non idle if any vcpu was preempted on this CPU?
