sched: Forced task migration on heterogeneous systems
This patch introduces forced task migration for moving suitable currently running tasks between hmp_domains. Task behaviour is likely to change over time. Tasks running in a less capable hmp_domain may change to become more demanding and should therefore be migrated up. They are unlikely go through the select_task_rq_fair() path anytime soon and therefore need special attention. This patch introduces a period check (SCHED_TICK) of the currently running task on all runqueues and sets up a forced migration using stop_machine_no_wait() if the task needs to be migrated. Ideally, this should not be implemented by polling all runqueues. Signed-off-by: Morten Rasmussen <Morten.Rasmussen@arm.com>
