^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
I see where that's coming from, but using 'sgs' here is tad confusing since
'sds->busiest_stat' is what's actually used.

Maybe just something like 'the busiest's sgs->group_load' would be good
enough to make things explicit.

That should be group_load, not avg_load. With that fixed:
