Oh, yeah, I know load_avg is delayed, but I don't know why this is slightly better
approximation, in which "Use this CPU's actual weight instead of the last
load_contribution".

In addition to that, if we use this approximation, should we worry that
the child cfs and group's added weight is toward likely to be underrated? No?

or we do this instead:

tg_weight = atomic_long_read(&tg->load_avg);
tg_weight -= cfs_rq->tg_load_contrib;
tg_weight += cfs_rq->load_avg;
~~~~~~~~

Thanks,
Yuyang
