[PATCH v9 02/10] sched: Track group sched_entity usage contributions

From: Morten Rasmussen <morten.rasmussen at arm.com>

Adds usage contribution tracking for group entities. Unlike
se->avg.load_avg_contrib, se->avg.utilization_avg_contrib for group
entities is the sum of se->avg.utilization_avg_contrib for all entities on the
group runqueue. It is _not_ influenced in any way by the task group
h_load. Hence it is representing the actual cpu usage of the group, not
its intended load contribution which may differ significantly from the
utilization on lightly utilized systems.
