[PATCH v3 2/2] sched/deadline: Initialize cp->elements[].cpu to an invalid value




Currently, migrating tasks to cpu0 unconditionally happens when the
heap is empty, since cp->elements[].cpu was initialized to 0(=cpu0).
We have to distinguish between the empty case and cpu0 to avoid the
unnecessary migrations. Therefore, it has to return an invalid value
e.i. -1 in that case.
