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

In check_preempt_equal_prio(), when p is queued, there may be other
tasks already queued at the same priority in the "run queue", so we
should peek the most front one to do the preemption, not the p.

This patch modified it and moved the preemption job to a new function
named check_preempt_equal_prio_common() to make the logic clearer.
