[PATCH 1/5] sched: limit cpu search in select_idle_cpu




Put upper and lower limit on cpu search of select_idle_cpu. The lower limit
is amount of cpus in a core while upper limit is twice that. This ensures
for any architecture we will usually search beyond a core. The upper limit
also helps in keeping the search cost low and constant.
