sched: Ensure cpu_power periodic update
With a lot of small tasks, the softirq sched is nearly never called when no_hz is enabled. In this case load_balance() is mainly called with the newly_idle mode which doesn't update the cpu_power. Add a next_update field which ensure a maximum update period when there is short activity. Having stale cpu_power information can skew the load-balancing decisions, this is cured by the guaranteed update.
