    Well, they are actually used in sched.h, in the inline routines
    account_group_user_time() and friends, which are in turn used by
    routines in sched.c. The point here is that the
    thread_group_cputime_account_xxx() routines are defined differently
    depending upon whether we're building for UP or SMP and the
    account_group_xxx() routines use the appropriate version accordingly.

    Agreed, but Roland and I were trying to make life easier for folks who
    have to maintain SMP and UP versions of this stuff, keeping it all in
    one place rather than scattering it about.

    If you insist, I'll un-inline the routines but this will mean moving all
    of this (thread_group_cputime_account_xxx() and account_group_xxx()
    routines) to sched.c. Maybe that makes sense. It's your call; I'll
    hold off on the changes (and resubmitting the patch) while I wait for
    you to let me know what you prefer. Thanks.
