Fix the insertion of cfs_rq in rq->leaf_cfs_rq_list to ensure that
a child will always be called before its parent.

The hierarchical order in shares update list has been introduced by
commit 67e86250f8ea ("sched: Introduce hierarchal order on shares update list")

With the current implementation a child can be still put after its parent.

Lets take the example of
       root
        \
         b
         /\
         c d*
           |
           e*

with root -> b -> c already enqueued but not d -> e so the leaf_cfs_rq_list
looks like: head -> c -> b -> root -> tail

The branch d -> e will be added the first time that they are enqueued,
starting with e then d.

When e is added, its parents is not already on the list so e is put at the
tail : head -> c -> b -> root -> e -> tail

Then, d is added at the head because its parent is already on the list:
head -> d -> c -> b -> root -> e -> tail

e is not placed at the right position and will be called the last whereas
it should be called at the beginning.

Because it follows the bottom-up enqueue sequence, we are sure that we
will finished to add either a cfs_rq without parent or a cfs_rq with a parent
that is already on the list. We can use this event to detect when we have
finished to add a new branch. For the others, whose parents are not already
added, we have to ensure that they will be added after their children that
have just been inserted the steps before, and after any potential parents that
are already in the list. The easiest way is to put the cfs_rq just after the
last inserted one and to keep track of it untl the branch is fully added.
