Correct me if I am wrong,but isn't the current load balancer also
disregarding the real time tasks to calculate the domain/group/cpu level
load too?

What I mean is,if the answer to the above question is yes,then can we
safely assume that the furthur optimizations to the load balancer like
the power aware scheduler and the usage of per entity load tracking can
be done without considering the real time tasks?
