sched: Reset loop counters if all tasks are pinned and we need to redo load balance
While load balancing, if all tasks on the source runqueue are pinned, we retry after excluding the corresponding source cpu. However, loop counters env.loop and env.loop_break are not reset before retrying, which can lead to failure in moving the tasks. In this patch we reset env.loop and env.loop_break to their inital values before we retry.
