Subject[PATCH 2/2] devscgroup: relax task to dev_cgroup conversion
Two functions, that need to get a device_cgroup from a task (they
are devcgroup_inode_permission and devcgroup_inode_mknod) make it
in a strange way:

They get a css_set from task, then a subsys_state from css_set,
then a cgroup from the state and then a subsys_state again from
the cgroup. Besides, the devices_subsys_id is read from memory,
whilst there's a enum-ed constant for it.

Optimize this part a bit:
1. Get the subsys_stats form the task and be done - no 2 extra
dereferences,
2. Use the device_subsys_id constant, not the value from memory
(i.e. one less dereference).

Found while preparing 2.6.26 OpenVZ port.
