SubjectRe: [PATCH] sched/fair: Don't pull task if local group is more loaded than busiest group

Do you see any wrong task migration ? because if imbalance is < 0, detach_tasks should return early

If local is not overloaded, local->avg_load is null because it has not been already computed.

You should better add such test in calculate_imbalance after we computed local->avg_load and set imbalance to NULL

something like:

diff --git a/kernel/sched/fair.c b/kernel/sched/fair.c
