If the CPU is used for handling lot of IRQs, trig a load balance to check if
it's worth moving its tasks on another CPU that has more capacity.

As a sidenote, this will note generate more spurious ilb because we already
trig an ilb if there is more than 1 busy cpu. If this cpu is the only one that
has a task, we will trig the ilb once for migrating the task.

The nohz_kick_needed function has been cleaned up a bit while adding the new
test

env.src_cpu and env.src_rq must be set unconditionnaly because they are used
in need_active_balance which is called even if busiest->nr_running equals 1
