You're talking about group se's or cfs_rq owned by the group se's
(se->my_q) here or both?

Just asking because both data structures (cfs_rq and se) have a 'struct
load_weight load' as well as 'struct sched_avg avg' member.

With your patch-set there will be still the difference of
'cfs_rq->utilization_load_avg' and your 'cfs_rq->avg.util_avg' in the
sense that the former one does not contain the contribution of blocked se's.

The EAS patch-set adds blocked utilization contribution:

The cfs_rq utilization is also used by the load-balancer code via
get_cpu_usage() so the blocked utilization contribution to
'cfs_rq->avg.util_avg' can change load-balancing as well.

Since it is not as heavily used as the cfs_rq->runnable_load_avg we
might not need to reintroduce cfs_rq->utilization_load_avg but at least
mention this here.
