At task wake-up load-tracking isn't updated until the task is enqueued.
The task's own view of its utilization contribution may therefore not be
aligned with its contribution to the cfs_rq load-tracking which may have
been updated in the meantime. Basically, the task's own utilization
hasn't yet accounted for the sleep decay, while the cfs_rq may have
(partially). Estimating the cfs_rq utilization in case the task is
migrated at wake-up as task_rq(p)->cfs.avg.util_avg - p->se.avg.util_avg
is therefore incorrect as the two load-tracking signals aren't time
synchronized (different last update).

To solve this problem, this patch synchronizes the task utilization with
its previous rq before the task utilization is used in the wake-up path.
Currently the update/synchronization is done _after_ the task has been
placed by select_task_rq_fair(). The synchronization is done without
having to take the rq lock using the existing mechanism used in
remove_entity_load_avg().
