scheduler: domain: init next_balance in nohz_idle_balancer with jiffies
Bug 878165 The next_balance parameter of nohz_idle_balancer should be initialized to jiffies since jiffies itself is initialized to 300 seconds shy of overflow. Otherwise, nohz_idle_balancer does not run for the first 5 mins after bootup.
