sched/fair: Avoid stale CPU util_est value for schedutil in task dequeue

CPU (root cfs_rq) estimated utilization (util_est) is currently used in
dequeue_task_fair() to drive frequency selection before it is updated.

with:

CPU_util        : rq->cfs.avg.util_avg
CPU_util_est    : rq->cfs.avg.util_est
CPU_utilization : max(CPU_util, CPU_util_est)
task_util       : p->se.avg.util_avg
task_util_est   : p->se.avg.util_est

dequeue_task_fair():

    /* (1) CPU_util and task_util update + inform schedutil about
           CPU_utilization changes */
    for_each_sched_entity() /* 2 loops */
        (dequeue_entity() ->) update_load_avg() -> cfs_rq_util_change()
         -> cpufreq_update_util() ->...-> sugov_update_[shared\|single]
         -> sugov_get_util() -> cpu_util_cfs()

    /* (2) CPU_util_est and task_util_est update */
    util_est_dequeue()

cpu_util_cfs() uses CPU_utilization which could lead to a false (too
high) utilization value for schedutil in task ramp-down or ramp-up
scenarios during task dequeue.

To mitigate the issue split the util_est update (2) into:

 (A) CPU_util_est update in util_est_dequeue()
 (B) task_util_est update in util_est_update()

Place (A) before (1) and keep (B) where (2) is. The latter is necessary
since (B) relies on task_util update in (1).
