I gave a quick run to this series, and it seems the fairness across
taskgroups is broken with this.

Test setup:
Machine : IBM xSeries with Intel(R) Xeon(R) x5570 2.93GHz CPU with 8
core, 64GB RAM, 16 cpu.

Create 3 taskgroups: fair16, fair32 and fair48 having 16, 32 and 48
cpu-hog tasks respectively. They have equal shares(default 1024), so
they should consume roughly the same time.

120secs run 1:
Time consumed by fair16 cgroup: 712912 Tasks: 16
Time consumed by fair32 cgroup: 650977 Tasks: 32
Time consumed by fair48 cgroup: 575681 Tasks: 48

120secs run 2:
Time consumed by fair16 cgroup: 686295 Tasks: 16
Time consumed by fair32 cgroup: 643474 Tasks: 32
Time consumed by fair48 cgroup: 611415 Tasks: 48

600secs run 1:
Time consumed by fair16 cgroup: 4109678 Tasks: 16
Time consumed by fair32 cgroup: 1743983 Tasks: 32
Time consumed by fair48 cgroup: 3759826 Tasks: 48

600secs run 2:
Time consumed by fair16 cgroup: 3893365 Tasks: 16
Time consumed by fair32 cgroup: 3028280 Tasks: 32
Time consumed by fair48 cgroup: 2692001 Tasks: 48

As you can see there is a lot of variance in the above results.
