Subject[patch v4 09/18] sched: add sched_policies in kernel
Current scheduler behavior is just consider the for larger performance
of system. So it try to spread tasks on more cpu sockets and cpu cores

To adding the consideration of power awareness, the patchset adds
2 kinds of scheduler policy: powersaving and balance. They will use
runnable load util in scheduler balancing. The current scheduling is taken
as performance policy.

performance: the current scheduling behaviour, try to spread tasks
on more CPU sockets or cores. performance oriented.
powersaving: will pack tasks into few sched group until all LCPU in the
group is full, power oriented.
balance : will pack tasks into few sched group until group_capacity
numbers CPU is full, balance between performance and

The following patches will enable powersaving/balance scheduling in CFS.
