[PATCH 26/32] nohz/cpuset: Flush cputime on threads in nohz cpusets when waiting leader

From: Frederic Weisbecker
Date: Mon Aug 15 2011 - 11:55:44 EST

When we wait for a zombie task, flush the cputimes on nohz cpusets
in case we are waiting for a group leader that has threads running
in nohz CPUs. This way thread_group_times() doesn't report stale

If I understood well the code, by the time we call that thread_group_times(),
we may have childs that are still running, so this is necessary.
But I need to check deeper.
