Do you mean cstime/cutime/c* accounting?

Firstly it is not clear what makes child_reaper special in _this_ sense, but
this doesn't matter at all.

The auotoreaping/EXIT_DEAD children are not accounted, only wait_task_zombie()
accumulates these counters. (just in case, accounting in __exit_signal() is
another thing).

Sure. That is why I said "lets discuss this later". This patch doesn't try
to change the rules. It only tries to document the current code.
