For task, assuming its load.weight does not change much, yes, we can. But in theory, task's
load.weight can change, and *w in load_sum can take into that change. For group entity
and cfs_rq, its load.weight changes all the time, I don't know how to do it without *w
for load_sum.

Sorry for my irresponsiveness for last week. I was on vacation and unfortunately failed to
connect VPN from where I was.

Thanks,
