Can you please split out the get_task_timer_slack() change into a
separate patch?

Also the function wants to be named different.

task_get_effective_timer_slack() or such, so it becomes clear, that
it's not just a wrapper around tsk->timer_slack_ns

And the places which access tsk->timer_slack_ns directly should be
updated with comments, why they are not using the wrapper.

New line between variables and code please

Ditto

So, we can increase the value and propagate it through the groups
children, but decreasing it requires to go through all child groups
seperately. 

When I'm trying to optimize something during runtime and chose a too
high value I need to go through hoops and loops to make it smaller
again.

Asymetric behaviour sucks always.

Did you just remove the odd comment or actually figure out why you
need rcu_read_lock() here ?

Otherwise, it's way more palatable than the last one.
