[PATCH 2/5] sched: introduce per-cpu var next_cpu to track search limit




Introduce a per-cpu variable to track the limit upto which idle cpu search
was done in select_idle_cpu(). This will help to start the search next time
from there. This is necessary for rotating the search window over entire
LLC domain.
