Regarding just extending the condition to include idle balance:

As in the previous thread, I'll still argue that if you want to *reliably*
exploit newidle balances to do asym packing active balancing, you should
add some logic to raise rq->rd->overload when we notice some asym packing
could be done, so that it can be leveraged by a higher-priority CPU doing
a newidle balance.

Otherwise the few newidle asym-packing active balances you'll get will be
due to somewhat random luck because we happened to set that overload flag
at some point.
