sched/rt: Fix task stack corruption under __ARCH_WANT_INTERRUPTS_ON_CTXSW

This issue happens under the following conditions:

 1. preemption is off
 2. __ARCH_WANT_INTERRUPTS_ON_CTXSW is defined
 3. RT scheduling class
 4. SMP system

Sequence is as follows:

 1.suppose current task is A. start schedule()
 2.task A is enqueued pushable task at the entry of schedule()
   __schedule
    prev = rq->curr;
    ...
    put_prev_task
     put_prev_task_rt
      enqueue_pushable_task
 4.pick the task B as next task.
   next = pick_next_task(rq);
 3.rq->curr set to task B and context_switch is started.
   rq->curr = next;
 4.At the entry of context_swtich, release this cpu's rq->lock.
   context_switch
    prepare_task_switch
     prepare_lock_switch
      raw_spin_unlock_irq(&rq->lock);
 5.Shortly after rq->lock is released, interrupt is occurred and start IRQ context
 6.try_to_wake_up() which called by ISR acquires rq->lock
    try_to_wake_up
     ttwu_remote
      rq = __task_rq_lock(p)
      ttwu_do_wakeup(rq, p, wake_flags);
        task_woken_rt
 7.push_rt_task picks the task A which is enqueued before.
   task_woken_rt
    push_rt_tasks(rq)
     next_task = pick_next_pushable_task(rq)
 8.At find_lock_lowest_rq(), If double_lock_balance() returns 0,
   lowest_rq can be the remote rq.
  (But,If preemption is on, double_lock_balance always return 1 and it
   does't happen.)
   push_rt_task
    find_lock_lowest_rq
     if (double_lock_balance(rq, lowest_rq))..
 9.find_lock_lowest_rq return the available rq. task A is migrated to
   the remote cpu/rq.
   push_rt_task
    ...
    deactivate_task(rq, next_task, 0);
    set_task_cpu(next_task, lowest_rq->cpu);
    activate_task(lowest_rq, next_task, 0);
 10. But, task A is on irq context at this cpu.
     So, task A is scheduled by two cpus at the same time until restore from IRQ.
     Task A's stack is corrupted.

To fix it, don't migrate an RT task if it's still running.
