    Can I have this snapshot pls? I have to deal with the same issue when
    the current task switches groups and I was planning to fix it by
    introducing a set_curr_task() method in fair_sched_class which
    initializes exec_start and other fields for that task.

    hmm ..i was thinking of the case where currently running task belongs to
    fair_sched class but the raw_weighted_load field of runqueue includes
    weight from real time tasks (which would have affected the delta_mine
    calculation). Now I realize that it is not possible because real-time
    tasks always preempt fair-sched tasks. So possibly this is not an issue.

    Sure ..the unified weight number is usefull to pick the busiest
    group/queue during load balance. I am retaining this aspect in my
    patches (which I am preparing to send against -v15 atm).
