Linux 4.18 Scheduler Updates Benefit Schedutil, NUMA, vCPUs

The scheduler updates submitted today for the Linux 4.18 kernel merge window include a few notable changes.

This pull does contain the previously-covered scheduler optimization for virtual CPUs. That change is about not scheduling threads on pre-empted vCPUs and in some synthetic scheduler benchmarks yielded a change by as much as 8~25%.
