powerpc/spufs: Improve search of node for contexts with SPU affinity

This patch improves redability of the code responsible for trying to find
a node with enough SPUs not committed to other affinity gangs.

An additional check is also added, to avoid taking into account gangs that
have no SPU affinity.
