sched: Run task on same cpu if idle and allowed
The current RT balancer does not consider CPU topology and may wakeup a process to run on another CPU although it might run on the current. This patch adds a check and runs the new task on the current CPU, if it - is an RT task, - is allowed to run on the current CPU, and - current is not an RT task, Signed-off-by: Carsten Emde <C.Emde@osadl.org> Signed-off-by: Thomas Gleixner <tglx@linutronix.de>
