Subject[PATCH v2 16/19] sched/numa: Detect if node actively handling migration
Date
If a node is the destination for a task migration under numa balancing,
then any parallel movements to the node will be restricted. In such a
scenario, detect at the earliest and avoid evaluation for a task
movement.

While here, avoid task migration if the numa imbalance is very minimal.
Especially consider two tasks A and B racing with each other to find the
best cpu to swap. If task A already has found one task/cpu pair to
swap and trying to find a better cpu. Task B is yet to find a better
cpu/task to swap. Task A can race with task B and deprive it from
getting a task/cpu to swap.

Changelog v1->v2:
- Handle trivial changes due to variable name change.
- Also reevaluate node active migration for every cpu.
- Now detect active migration in task_numa_find_cpu as
suggested by Rik Van Riel.
