sgc->next_update is safe since it's only touched by CPUs that have the
group span as local group (which is never the case for CPUs where we do
this "grandchildren" trick).

I'm a bit less clear about sgc->imbalance. I think it can be set by remote
CPUs, but it should only be cleared when running load_balance() by CPUs
that have that group span as local group, as per:

int *group_imbalance = &sd_parent->groups->sgc->imbalance;
