    I dont think it is true. The definition of TASK_PREEMPTS_CURR() is
    unchanged with these patches. Also group priority is linked to the
    highest priority task it has. As a result, the high-priority group-a
    task should preempt the low priority group-b task.

    This is unless group-a has currently run out of its bandwidth and is sitting in
    the expired queue (which is something that the TASK_PREEMPTS_CURR()
    can be optimized to check for).
