    While I'm all in favour of making things more consistent, do we need
    such a big change?

    In particular, making the group flex-array entries contain both a task
    and a cgroup appears to be only necessary in order to skip tasks where
    new_cgroup == old_cgroup. Can't we get the same effect by simply
    leaving all such tasks out of the flex-array in the first place?
