Here we care the utilization of the cpu not the load avg. load avg maybe
quit bigger on a heavy task(with a big load weight), but maybe it just
used 20% of cpu time, while a light task with 100% cpu usage maybe still
has smaller load avg.

For power consideration, above light task with 100% usage need to take a
cpu, while another heavy task can packing into one cpu with other tasks.
