SubjectRe: [PATCH 2/3] sched/fair: Correctly insert cfs_rq's to list on unthrottle

> normally tg_load_avg_contrib should be null when cfs_rq_is_decayed()

Yeah, I think that is an ok assumption of how it _should_ work (given
the other patches in flight are merged).

Yeah, right.

Yeah, there is probably a chance of enqueuing a task without any load,
and then a parent gets throttled.
So (cfs_rq->tg_load_avg_contrib || cfs_rq->nr_running) is probably the
way to go if we want to avoid
a new field. Will resend a patch with that instead.

In case the new field is the main issue with the original solution, we
could also change the on_list int to have three modes like; NO, YES,
THROTTLED/PAUSED, but that would require a bigger rewrite of the other
logic, so probably outside the scope of this patch.
