sched: Set group_imb only a task can be pulled from the busiest cpu
Nikhil Rao [Wed, 13 Oct 2010 19:09:36 +0000 (12:09 -0700)]
When cycling through sched groups to determine the busiest group, set
group_imb only if the busiest cpu has more than 1 runnable task. This patch
fixes the case where two cpus in a group have one runnable task each, but there
is a large weight differential between these two tasks. The load balancer is
unable to migrate any task from this group, and hence do not consider this
group to be imbalanced.
