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.
