sched/wait: Introduce TASK_NOLOAD and TASK_IDLE



Currently people use TASK_INTERRUPTIBLE to idle kthreads and wait for
'work' because TASK_UNINTERRUPTIBLE contributes to the loadavg. Having
all idle kthreads contribute to the loadavg is somewhat silly.

Now mostly this works OK, because kthreads have all their signals
masked. However there's a few sites where this is causing problems and
TASK_UNINTERRUPTIBLE should be used, except for that loadavg issue.

This patch adds TASK_NOLOAD which, when combined with
TASK_UNINTERRUPTIBLE avoids the loadavg accounting.

As most of imagined usage sites are loops where a thread wants to
idle, waiting for work, a helper TASK_IDLE is introduced.
