When a runqueue runs out of RT tasks, it may have non-RT tasks or
none tasks(idle). Currently, RT balance treats the two cases equally
and manipulates cpupri.pri_to_cpu[CPUPRI_NORMAL] only which may cause

For instance, 4 cpus system, non-RT task1 is running on cpu0, RT
task2 is running on cpu3, cpu1/cpu2 both are idle. Then RT task3
(usually CPU-intensive) is waken up or created on cpu3, it will
be placed to cpu0 (see find_lowest_rq()) causing task1 starving
until cfs load balance places task1 to another cpu, or even worse
if task1 is bound on cpu0. So, it would be reasonable to put task3
to cpu1 or cpu2 which is idle(even though doing this may break the
energy-saving idle state).

This patch tackles the problem by operating pri_to_cpu[CPUPRI_IDLE]
of cpupri according to the stages of idle task, so that when pushing
RT tasks through find_lowest_rq(), it will try to find one idle cpu
as the goal.
