Subject[PATCH v2 1/4] sched/fair: always used unsigned long for utilization
Utilization and capacity are tracked as unsigned long, however some
functions using them return an int which is ultimately assigned back to
unsigned long variables.

Since there is not scope on using a different and signed type, this
consolidate the signature of functions returning utilization to always
use the native type.
As well as improving code consistency this is expected also benefits
code paths where utilizations should be clamped by avoiding further type
conversions or ugly type casts.

Changes v1->v2:
- rebase on top of v4.15-rc2
- tested that overhauled PELT code does not affect the util_est
