This new field cpu_capacity_orig reflects the original capacity of a CPU
before being altered by frequency scaling, rt tasks and/or IRQ

The cpu_capacity_orig  will be used in several places to detect when the
capapcity of a CPU has been noticeably reduced so we can trig load balance
to look for a CPU with better capacity.
As an example, we can detect when a CPU handles a significant amount of irq
(with CONFIG_IRQ_TIME_ACCOUNTING) but this CPU is seen as an idle CPU by
scheduler whereas CPUs, which are really idle, are available

In addition, this new cpu_capacity_orig will be used to evaluate the usage of
a the CPU by CFS tasks
