Sorry, I misunderstood the fix and I did not initially see the core wide
min_vruntime that you tried to maintain in the rq->core. This approach
seems reasonable. I think we can fix the potential starvation that you
mentioned in the comment by adjusting for the difference in all the children
cfs_rq when we set the minvruntime in rq->core. Since we take the lock for
both the queues, it should be doable and I am trying to see how we can best
do that.

I think your fix is almost close to maintaining a core wide vruntime as you
have a single minvruntime to compare now across the siblings in the core.
To make the fix complete, we might need to adjust the whole tree's
min_vruntime and I think its doable.

Thanks,
Vineeth
