Yes, I'm still working my way through Yuyang's changes.

I don't mind using sched_class::task_dead() instead. The reason why I
didn't go that way is that we have to retake the rq->lock or mess with
cfs_rq::removed_load instead of just not adding the utilization in
the first place when we have the rq->lock.
Anyway, it is probably redundant by now. I will check Yuyang's code to
see if he already fixed this problem.
