In case of active balance, we increase the balance interval to cover
pinned tasks cases not covered by all_pinned logic. Neverthless, the active
migration triggered by asym packing should be treated as the normal
unbalanced case and reset the interval to default value otherwise active
migration for asym_packing can be easily delayed for hundreds of ms
because of this all_pinned detection mecanism.
