I see a diff (e.g. for arm64 defconfig):

6d626e0aaf91 - (HEAD -> tip/sched/core_rt_rq_util_tracking) sched/nohz:
monitor rt utilization (2018-04-15 Vincent Guittot)
3111c6206f0c - cpufreq/schedutil: add rt utilization tracking
(2018-04-15 Vincent Guittot)
62e103d266ed - sched/rt: add rt_rq utilization tracking (2018-04-15
Vincent Guittot)
8f78fef6b1a2 - sched/pelt: Move pelt related code in a dedicated file
(2018-04-15 Vincent Guittot)
31e77c93e432 - (tip/sched/core_rt_rq_util_tracking_base) sched/fair:
Update blocked load when newly idle (2018-03-09 Vincent Guittot)

size vmlinux
text data bss dec hex filename
11286856 6154896 410296 17852048 1106690 vmlinux


31e77c93e432 - (HEAD -> tip/sched/core_rt_rq_util_tracking_base)
sched/fair: Update blocked load when ne$
ly idle (2018-03-09 Vincent Guittot)

size vmlinux
text data bss dec hex filename

11295048 6154896 410296 17860240 1108690 vmlinux

So I assume that in kernel/sched/fair.o:

U __update_load_avg_blocked_se
U __update_load_avg_cfs_rq
U __update_load_avg_se

are function calls now.
