sched/fair: Ensure tasks spreading in LLC during LB

schbench shows latency increase for 95 percentile above since:
commit 0b0695f2b34a ("sched/fair: Rework load_balance()")

Align the behavior of the load balancer with the wake up path, which tries
to select an idle CPU which belongs to the LLC for a waking task.

calculate_imbalance() will use nr_running instead of the spare
capacity when CPUs share resources (ie cache) at the domain level. This
will ensure a better spread of tasks on idle CPUs.

Running schbench on a hikey (8cores arm64) shows the problem:

tip/sched/core :
schbench -m 2 -t 4 -s 10000 -c 1000000 -r 10
Latency percentiles (usec)
50.0th: 33
75.0th: 45
90.0th: 51
95.0th: 4152
*99.0th: 14288
99.5th: 14288
99.9th: 14288
min=0, max=14276

tip/sched/core + patch :
schbench -m 2 -t 4 -s 10000 -c 1000000 -r 10
Latency percentiles (usec)
50.0th: 34
75.0th: 47
90.0th: 52
95.0th: 78
*99.0th: 94
99.5th: 94
99.9th: 94
min=0, max=94
