Subject[PATCH v2 3/3] sched/fair: break out of newidle balancing if an RT task appears
Date
The CFS load balancer can take a little while, to the point of it having
a special LBF_NEED_BREAK flag, when the task moving code takes a
breather.

However, at that point it will jump right back in to load balancing,
without checking whether the CPU has gained any runnable real time
(or deadline) tasks.

Break out of load balancing in the CPU_NEWLY_IDLE case, to allow the
scheduling of the RT task. Without this, latencies of over 1ms are
seen on large systems.
