[PATCH] sched/rt: fix call to cpufreq_update_util

With commit 8f111bc357aa ("cpufreq/schedutil: Rewrite CPUFREQ_RT support")
schedutil governor uses rq->rt.rt_nr_running to detect whether a RT task is
currently running on the CPU and to set frequency to max if necessary.
cpufreq_update_util() is called in enqueue/dequeue_top_rt_rq() but
rq->rt.rt_nr_running as not been updated yet when dequeue_top_rt_rq() is
called so schedutil still considers that a RT task is running when the
last task is dequeued. The update of rq->rt.rt_nr_running happens later
in dequeue_rt_stack()
