According to the packing policy, the scheduler can pack tasks at different
step:
-SCHED_PACKING_NONE level: we don't pack any task.
-SCHED_PACKING_DEFAULT: we only pack small tasks at wake up when system is not
busy.
-SCHED_PACKING_FULL: we pack tasks at wake up until a CPU becomes full. During
a fork or a exec, we assume that the new task is a full running one and we
look for an idle CPU close to the buddy CPU.
