Subject[patch 008/104] cgroups: fix a serious bug in cgroupstats
2.6.27-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------
From: Li Zefan <lizf@cn.fujitsu.com>
commit 33d283bef23132c48195eafc21449f8ba88fce6b upstream.

Try this, and you'll get oops immediately:
# cd Documentation/accounting/
# gcc -o getdelays getdelays.c
# mount -t cgroup -o debug xxx /mnt
# ./getdelays -C /mnt/tasks

Because a normal file's dentry->d_fsdata is a pointer to struct cftype,
not struct cgroup.

After the patch, it returns EINVAL if we try to get cgroupstats
from a normal file.
