   # HEAD: 765cc3a4b224e22bf524fabe40284a524f37cdd0 sched/core: Optimize sched_feat() for !CONFIG_SCHED_DEBUG builds

The main updates in this cycle were:

 - Group balancing enhancements and cleanups (Brendan Jackman)

 - Move CPU isolation related functionality into its separate 
   kernel/sched/isolation.c file, with related 'housekeeping_*()' namespace and 
   nomenclature et al. (Frederic Weisbecker)

 - Improve the interactive/cpu-intense fairness calculation (Josef Bacik)

 - Improve the PELT code and related cleanups (Peter Zijlstra)

 - Improve the logic of pick_next_task_fair() (Uladzislau Rezki)

 - Improve the RT IPI based balancing logic (Steven Rostedt)

 - Various micro-optimizations:

   - better !CONFIG_SCHED_DEBUG optimizations (Patrick Bellasi)
   - better idle loop (Cheng Jian)

 - ... plus misc fixes, cleanups and updates.
