I think you are right in general, it has nothing to do with
migrate_task_rq_fair() and the load should be carried to new cfs_rq.

But whether it is queued or not should be doing the same thing, so what about:

/* if queued, the previous dequeue_task() should have already done it */
if (!queued)


/* virtually catch up because of the skew between cfs_rqs */
task's last_update_time = cfs_rq's last_update_time;
