Subject[PATCH v2 4/5] sched/fair: Fix use of find_idlest_group when no groups are allowed
When p is allowed on none of the CPUs in the sched_domain, we
currently return NULL from find_idlest_group, and pointlessly
continue the search on lower sched_domain levels (where p is also not
allowed) before returning prev_cpu regardless (as we have not updated

Add an explicit check for this case, and a comment to
find_idlest_group. Now when find_idlest_group returns NULL, it always
means that the local group is allowed and idlest.
