One goal was to keep util_est variables close to the util_avg used to
load the filter, for caches affinity sakes.

The other goal was to have util_est data only for Tasks and CPU's
RQ, thus avoiding unused data for TG's RQ and SE.

Unfortunately the first goal does not allow to achieve completely the
second and, you right, the solution looks a bit inconsistent.

Do you think we should better disregard cache proximity and move
util_est_runnable to rq?
