Yes, AFAICS at least load_avg_contrib and decay_count are only relevant
for struct sched_entity whereas last_runnable_update is used in
__update_entity_runnable_avg() itself.

By having struct sched_avg embedded into struct sched_entity and struct
rq, __update_entity_runnable_avg() and __update_tg_runnable_avg() can be
used on both and moreover, all current members of struct sched_avg
belong logically together.

With this patch I was more interested in the fact that we do not have to
maintain the load avg for struct rq in a !CONFIG_FAIR_GROUP_SCHED system.
