update_cfs_share(s)() is still mentioned in the function header of
update_tg_load_avg() and update_cfs_rq_load_avg().

Should we rename those comments with this patch?

IMHO, the comment for update_tg_load_avg() is still true whereas the one
for update_cfs_rq_load_avg() mentions cfs_rq->avg as
cfs_rq->avg.load_avg (or cfs_rq_load_avg()) and update_cfs_group()
doesn't use it anymore. It's now used in calc_group_runnable() and
calc_group_shares() instead.
