From: Daniel Lezcano <daniel.lezcano@linaro.org>

The idle_balance modifies the idle_stamp field of the rq, making this
information to be shared across core.c and fair.c. As we can know if the
cpu is going to idle or not with the previous patch, let's encapsulate the
idle_stamp information in core.c by moving it up to the caller. The
idle_balance function returns true in case a balancing occured and the cpu
won't be idle, false if no balance happened and the cpu is going idle.
