Ok; I'll add a comment in the next version of the patchset.

Ok.

Notice that all this logic is used only to select one of the idle cores
(instead of picking the first idle core, we select the less powerful
core on which the task "fits").

So, running_bw does not provide any useful information, in this case;
maybe this_bw can be more useful.
