I'd like to see a little more separation beyond 1 linear series here.


We're doing the following things

1. Migrating the existing cpuacct functionality into cpu
2. Deprecating cpuacct
3. Adding new functionality

I would like to consider (3) separately from 1/2 which we can and should
accomplish immediately due to the over-head it's currently introducing. It
seems less than optimal to hinge resolving that on reaching agreement for the
new bits.

It also helps that the the migrated functionality in (1) is just exporting state
that is already being maintained by cpu so those changes end up being quite
small and non-invasive.
