I think I've posted this before, but anyway.
CALC_LOAD() and a number of its attendant macros are only ever used
in kernel/timer.c; this patch moves them there. Bizarrely, various
arch code for S/390, PPC Amiga, m68k(nommu), sh, and sh64 is using
FSHIFT, FIXED_1, and avenrun in a manner resembling /proc/ for the
purpose of LED flashing and similar (save S/390, which is rather odd),
so they can't be privatized without some sort of load average helpers.
The macros moved here are only ever used for updating the load average,
not reporting it. None of the platform drivers or /proc/ attempt to do
anything of that sort, so it's useless to clutter sched.h with them.
Spotted over the course of other, more meaningful cleanups being made
in preparation for more serious work.
