I'm thinking this patch is actively broken. groups->index 'group' wide
and therefore across cpu/cgroup boundaries.

There is no !cgroup to cgroup hierarchy as this patch seems to assume,
specifically look at how the merge sort in visit_groups_merge() allows
cgroup events to be picked before !cgroup events.
