We are comparing the best_energy_cpu against prev_cpu even when prev_cpu
can't accommodate the waking task. Is this intentional? Should not we
discard the prev_cpu if it can't accommodate the task.

This can potentially make a BIG task run on a lower capacity CPU until
load balancer kicks in and corrects the situation.
