sched: Don't defer CPU pick to migration_cpu_stop()

Will reported that the 'XXX __migrate_task() can fail' in migration_cpu_stop()
can happen, and it *is* sort of a big deal. Looking at it some more, one
will note there is a glaring hole in the deferred CPU selection:

  (w/ CONFIG_CPUSET=n, so that the affinity mask passed via taskset doesn't
  get AND'd with cpu_online_mask)

  $ taskset -pc 0-2 $PID
  # offline CPUs 3-4
  $ taskset -pc 3-5 $PID
    `\
      $PID may stay on 0-2 due to the cpumask_any_distribute() picking an
      offline CPU and __migrate_task() refusing to do anything due to
      cpu_is_allowed().

set_cpus_allowed_ptr() goes to some length to pick a dest_cpu that matches
the right constraints vs affinity and the online/active state of the
CPUs. Reuse that instead of discarding it in the affine_move_task() case.
