It's dl and cfs as the goal is to track cfs preempted by dl
This means creating a new struct whereas some fields are unused in avg_dl struct
And duplicate some call to ___update_load_sum as we track avg_dl for
and update_dl/rt_rq_load_avg are already call in fair.c for updating

we will not be able to make the difference between rt/dl/stop
preemption by using only pick_next_task_fair
