Ah, I think I've spotted more fail.

And I think you're right, it doesn't matter, in fact, 0 should have been
fine too!

enqueue_entity()
enqueue_entity_load_avg()
update_cfs_rq_load_avg()
now = clock()
__update_load_avg(&cfs_rq->avg)
cfs_rq->avg.last_load_update = now
// ages 0 load/util for: now - 0
if (migrated)
attach_entity_load_avg()
se->avg.last_load_update = cfs_rq->avg.last_load_update; // now != 0

So I don't see how it can end up being attached again.


Now I do see another problem, and that is that we're forgetting to
update_cfs_rq_load_avg() in all detach_entity_load_avg() callers and all
but the enqueue caller of attach_entity_load_avg().

Something like the below.
