I believe this patch is not needed because after this point we call
do_wait_thread /ptrace_do_wait, which both call wait_consider_task,
which calls wait_task_stopped/zombie/continued, which all eventually
calls getrusage, which calls k_getrusage where you added a call to
cpuset_noz_flush_cputimes() in another patch :-)
