Subject[patch 07/49] cgroups: fix invalid cgrp->dentry before cgroup has been completely removed
2.6.27-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------
From: Li Zefan <lizf@cn.fujitsu.com>

commit 24eb089950ce44603b30a3145a2c8520e2b55bb1 upstream

This fixes an oops when reading /proc/sched_debug.

A cgroup won't be removed completely until finishing cgroup_diput(), so we
shouldn't invalidate cgrp->dentry in cgroup_rmdir(). Otherwise, when a
group is being removed while cgroup_path() gets called, we may trigger
NULL dereference BUG.

The bug can be reproduced:

# cat test.sh
#!/bin/sh
mount -t cgroup -o cpu xxx /mnt
for (( ; ; ))
{
mkdir /mnt/sub
rmdir /mnt/sub
}
# ./test.sh &
# cat /proc/sched_debug
BUG: unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at 00000038
