The ->boosted_this_gp field is a holdover from an earlier design that
was to carry out multiple boost operations in parallel.  It is not required
by the current design, which boosts one task at a time.

Can you squash this patch into the commit that introduces
boosted_this_gp in the first place?

Unfortunately, no.  That commit is already in mainline.

							Thanx, Paul
