[PATCH 01/14] sched: add sched_class->task_dead.

From: Juri Lelli
Date: Mon Feb 11 2013 - 13:51:45 EST

From: Dario Faggioli <raistlin@xxxxxxxx>

Add a new function to the scheduling class interface. It is called
at the end of a context switch, if the prev task is in TASK_DEAD state.

It might be useful for the scheduling classes that want to be notified
when one of their task dies, e.g. to perform some cleanup actions.
