[patch v5 13/15] sched: no balance for prefer_sibling in power scheduling

From: Alex Shi
Date: Mon Feb 18 2013 - 00:08:14 EST

In power aware scheduling, we don't want to balance 'prefer_sibling'
groups just because local group has capacity.
If the local group has no tasks at the time, that is the power
balance hope so.
