SubjectRe: [patch v5 01/15] sched: set initial value for runnable avg of sched entities.
Hello, Alex.

I think that these are not random values. In arch_dup_task_struct(),
we do '*dst = *src', so, these values come from parent process. If we use
these value appropriately, we can anticipate child process' load easily.
So to initialize the load_avg_contrib to zero is not good idea for me.

Thanks.
