sched/fair: Fix find_idlest_group() to handle CPU affinity

Because of CPU affinity, the local group can be skipped which breaks the
assumption that statistics are always collected for local group. With
uninitialized local_sgs, the comparison is meaningless and the behavior
unpredictable. This can even end up to use local pointer which is to
NULL in this case.

If the local group has been skipped because of CPU affinity, we return
the idlest group.
