Exactly. When you call task_group() for an RT task, it returns
&root_task_group, so a task making the transition to RT will be dequeued
from it's autogroup cfs_rq, and enqueued in root_task_group's rt_rq.

Autogroup doesn't need to do cgroup stuff. If a task is in a cgroup,
it's autogroup remains intact, but is ignored. Move it back to root,
and it's autogroup will be used again.
