they are in lb_env, since we need to set them according to each group
status, mostly in update_sd_lb_power_stats().

Even the sched_balance_policy is powersaving, the domain may also need
performance balance since there are maybe too much tasks or much
imbalance in domain.

when we find the domain is not suitable for power balance, we will set
lb_perf = 1, then we don't need go through other groups for power info
