We do not have a clear fix for this yet, and did not get much time to
work on this.

I feel that the above change would not be fixing the real issue.
The issue is about not considering the weight of the group when we
try to load balance, but the above change is checking only the
nr_running which might not work always. I feel that we should fix
the real issue in v6 and probably hold on to adding the workaround
fix in the interim. I have added a TODO specifically for this bug
in v6.

What do you think?

Thanks,
Vineeth
