sched/fair: Check if prev_cpu has highest spare cap in feec()

When evaluating the CPU candidates in the perf domain (pd) containing
the previously used CPU (prev_cpu), find_energy_efficient_cpu()
evaluates the energy of the pd:
- without the task (base_energy)
- with the task placed on prev_cpu (if the task fits)
- with the task placed on the CPU with the highest spare capacity,
prev_cpu being excluded from this set

If prev_cpu is already the CPU with the highest spare capacity,
max_spare_cap_cpu will be the CPU with the second highest spare
capacity.

On an Arm64 Juno-r2, with a workload of 10 tasks at a 10% duty cycle,
when prev_cpu and max_spare_cap_cpu are both valid candidates,
prev_spare_cap > max_spare_cap at ~82%.
Thus the energy of the pd when placing the task on max_spare_cap_cpu
is computed with no possible positive outcome 82% most of the time.

Do not consider max_spare_cap_cpu as a valid candidate if
prev_spare_cap > max_spare_cap.
