Consider group_is_overloaded() returns false because of the first
if (sgs->sum_nr_running <= sgs->group_weight)
then group_has_capacity() would be the first place where the group_runnable
vs group_capacity comparison would be done.
Now in that specific case we'll actually only check it if
sgs->sum_nr_running == sgs->group_weight
and the only case where the runnable vs capacity check can fail here is if
there's significant capacity pressure going on. TBH this capacity pressure
could be happening even when there are fewer tasks than CPUs, so I'm not
sure how intentional that corner case is.
Maybe some cpus in sg->cpumask are no longer active at the == case,
which causes the significant capacity pressure?
That can only happen in that short window between deactivating a CPU and
not having rebuilt the sched_domains yet, which sounds quite elusive.
