From: Xunlei Pang <pang.xunlei@linaro.org>

We may suffer from extra rt overload rq due to the affinity,
so when the affinity of any runnable rt task is changed, we
should check to trigger balancing, otherwise it will cause
some unnecessary delayed real-time response. Unfortunately,
current RT global scheduler does nothing about this.

For example: a 2-cpu system with two runnable FIFO tasks(same
rt_priority) bound on CPU0, let's name them rt1(running) and
rt2(runnable) respectively; CPU1 has no RTs. Then, someone sets
the affinity of rt2 to 0x3(i.e. CPU0 and CPU1), but after this,
rt2 still can't be scheduled until rt1 enters schedule(), this
definitely causes some/big response latency for rt2.

So, when doing set_cpus_allowed_rt(), if detecting such cases,
check to trigger a push behaviour.
