    Or confusing, what happens if you attribute the IRQ overhead of a
    ping-flood to your tasks?

    By not providing these numbers per task/group people will have to
    actually think about what it is that is causing these high irq loads and
    have a chance of actually doing better than random attribution.

    So no, providing random numbers on the slight chance that they might
    possibly make sense for your workload doesn't seem like a sound reason
    to provide them.
