Tested it on an Ubuntu 16.10 Server (on top of the default 4.8.0-22-generic
kernel) on a Lenovo T430 and it didn't help.

What seems to cure it is to get rid of this snippet (part of the commit
mentioned earlier in this thread: 3d30544f0212):

BTW, I guess we can reach .tg_load_avg up to ~300000-400000 on such a system
initially because systemd will create all ~100 services (and therefore the
corresponding 2. level tg's) at once. In my previous example, there was 500ms
between the creation of 2 tg's so there was a lot of decaying going on in between.
