sched/Documentation/sched-rt-group: Fix incorrect example

I feel that the example given in the document to show the possibility
of task starvation of configurable period is wrong.

The example says group A and B both have 50% bandwidth, and a while (1)
loop in A will run for the full period of B and can starve B's tasks.

So I think the runtime of group A should be 50000us, then the period and
runtime of group B should be 50000us and 25000us.

Consider two sibling groups A and B; both have 50% bandwidth, but A's
period is twice the length of B's.
* group A: period=100000us, runtime=10000us
- this runs for 0.01s once every 0.1s
* group A: period=100000us, runtime=50000us
- this runs for 0.05s once every 0.1s
* group B: period= 50000us, runtime=10000us
- this runs for 0.01s twice every 0.1s (or once every 0.05 sec).
* group B: period= 50000us, runtime=25000us
- this runs for 0.025s twice every 0.1s (or once every 0.05 sec).
This means that currently a while (1) loop in A will run for the full period of
B and can starve B's tasks (assuming they are of lower priority) for a whole
