I had seen in my experiments, that the forked tasks with initial load to
be 0,would adversely affect the runqueue lengths.Since the load for
these tasks to pick up takes some time,the cpus on which the forked
tasks are scheduled, could be candidates for "dst_cpu" many times and
the runqueue lengths increase considerably.

This patch solves this issue by making the forked tasks contribute
actively to the runqueue load.
