Scheduler maintains a per LLC info which tells if there is any idle core
in that LLC. However this information doesn't provide which core is idle.

So when iterating for idle-cores, if select_idle_core() finds an
idle-core, then it doesn't try to reset this information.

So if there was only one idle core in the LLC and select_idle_core()
selected the idle-core, the LLC will maintain that it still has a
idle-core.

On the converse, if a task is pinned, and has a restricted
cpus_allowed_list and LLC has multiple idle-cores, but select_idle_core
cannot find a idle-core, LLC will no more maintain that it has an
idle-core.

As a first step to solve this problem, LLC will maintain the identity of
the idle core instead of just the information that LLC has an idle core

Along with maintaining, this change will solve both the problems listed
above. However there are other problems that exist with the current
infrastructure and those will continue to exist with this change and
would be handled in subsequent patches.
