    Subject[PATCH] cgroup: cgroup_rm_files() was calling simple_unlink() with the wrong inode
    From 6da2689412c78b97716ec524cc30baf7b46508cd Mon Sep 17 00:00:00 2001

    While refactoring cgroup file removal path, 05ef1d7c4a "cgroup:
    introduce struct cfent" incorrectly changed the @dir argument of
    simple_unlink() to the inode of the file being deleted instead of that
    of the containing directory.

    The effect of this bug is minor - ctime and mtime of the parent
    weren't properly updated on file deletion.

    Fix it by using @cgrp->dentry->d_inode instead.
