sched/numa: Simplify load_too_imbalanced()

Currently load_too_imbalance() cares about the slope of imbalance.
It doesn't care of the direction of the imbalance.

However this may not work if nodes that are being compared have
dissimilar capacities. Few nodes might have more cores than other nodes
in the system. Also unlike traditional load balance at a NUMA sched
domain, multiple requests to migrate from the same source node to same
destination node may run in parallel. This can cause huge load
imbalance. This is specially true on a larger machines with either large
cores per node or more number of nodes in the system. Hence allow
move/swap only if the imbalance is going to reduce.

Running SPECjbb2005 on a 4 node machine and comparing bops/JVM
