Subject[PATCH 5/5] sched: use the old min_vruntime when normalizing on dequeue
Date
From: Dima Zavin <dima@android.com>

After pulling the thread off the run-queue during a cgroup change,
the cfs_rq.min_vruntime gets recalculated. The dequeued thread's vruntime
then gets normalized to this new value. This can then lead to the thread
getting an unfair boost in the new group if the vruntime of the next
task in the old run-queue was way further ahead.
