The function name and the description is not 100% correct. For tasks
running naturally (not in a flattened taskgroup) in the root taskgroup
or for the se representing a first level taskgroup (e.g. /tg1 (with
se->depth = 0)) it returns the root cfs_rq or easier se->cfs_rq.

So you could replace

return &cfs_rq_of(se)->rq->cfs;

with

return se->cfs_rq;

or

return cfs_rq_of(se);

I guess a crucial point to understand is that you do need both,
cfs_rq_of(se) to access the flattened and group_cfs_rq_of_parent(se) to
access the hierarchical world.
