sched: Allow per-cpu kernel threads to run on online && !active
In order to enable symmetric hotplug, we must mirror the online && !active state of cpu-down on the cpu-up side. However, to retain sanity, limit this state to per-cpu kthreads. Aside from the change to set_cpus_allowed_ptr(), which allow moving the per-cpu kthreads on, the other critical piece is the cpu selection for pinned tasks in select_task_rq(). This avoids dropping into select_fallback_rq(). select_fallback_rq() cannot be allowed to select !active cpus because its used to migrate user tasks away. And we do not want to move user tasks onto cpus that are in transition.
