Thanks review, Morten!

cpu utilisation = rq->util * (rq->nr_running? rq->running : 1),
here: rq->util = running time / whole period.

If nr_running == 2, util == 99%, the potential max 'utilisation' is 99 *
2 = 198, because both of tasks may has the possibility to run full time.

group utils = Sum of all cpu's util,
like a 2 LCPU group, A nr_running is 0, B cpu util is 99%, and has 3 tasks,
So, the group utils = A'util + 99 * 3, that is bigger than threshold =
99% * 2.

The above calculation bias to performance, and that is our purpose.
