it's already in tip/sched/posix-cpu-timers, so please send a delta patch
against tip/master:

i'd suggest to move all the scheduler-internal accounting functions into
kernel/sched_stats.h. AFAICS there's no scheduler-external user of these
APIs. The most widely used external APIs is thread_group_cputime_smp(),
and that is out of line already. (except on UP where it's trivial)
