Definitely, group SE, and if the cfs_rq owned by group SE is also concerned
with group SE, then both. I don't think this is very well calculated to be
optimal, but probably this is the right move I can think of now.

We need to revisit all of the codes before we can at least make a final call.

Yes, thanks.
