The Android specific `latency_nice` (in Android `latency_sensitive`
[latency_nice < 0]) use case `Skip energy aware task placement` favors
an idle CPU over the EAS search path for a `latency_sensitive` task.

This is Android proprietary code similar to what we have in
find_idlest_group_cpu() in mainline.
We talked to the Android folks last week and IMHO they are not convinced
that they can switch this to the proposed `latency_nice->tweak
preemption` use case.
