sched/util_est: Fix util_est_dequeue() for throttled cfs_rq

When a cfs_rq is throttled, parent cfs_rq->nr_running is decreased and
everything happens at cfs_rq level. Currently util_est stays unchanged
in such case and it keeps accounting the utilization of throttled tasks.
This can somewhat make sense as we don't dequeue tasks but only throttled
cfs_rq.

If a task of another group is enqueued/dequeued and root cfs_rq becomes
idle during the dequeue, util_est will be cleared whereas it was
accounting util_est of throttled tasks before. So the behavior of util_est
is not always the same regarding throttled tasks and depends of side
activity. Furthermore, util_est will not be updated when the cfs_rq is
unthrottled as everything happens at cfs_rq level. Main results is that
util_est will stay null whereas we now have running tasks. We have to wait
for the next dequeue/enqueue of the previously throttled tasks to get an
up to date util_est.

Remove the assumption that cfs_rq's estimated utilization of a CPU is 0
if there is no running task so the util_est of a task remains until the
latter is dequeued even if its cfs_rq has been throttled.
