I've got kernel oops (NULL pointer dereference) when writing
"res=cpu,mode=enabled" to /rcfs/taskclass/config. ri->mfdentry
has been NULL.
The 1st argument of magic_parse() should not be anything of
the class directory but the name of the written file itself.

The following patch fixes the problem for me:
