SubjectRe: [RFC GIT PULL] scheduler fix for autogroups

The other reason was that the original version of the patch also
added a boot parameter - to enable/disable autogroups from the
boot command line. With *that* configuration twist it made sense
to present this information somewhere in /proc as well.

But then we got rid of the boot parameter to simplify the patch
- which further reduced the sense of the
/proc/sys/kernel/sched_autogroup_enabled flag - which now can
only ever be 1.

Thanks,

Ingo
