Subject[PATCH] fix cgroup procs documentation
2.6.33's Documentation has the same wrong information. So, I CC'ed to stable.
If people believe this information, they'll usr cgroup.procs file and will
see cgroup doesn'w work as expected.
The patch itself is against -mm.

Writing to cgroup.procs is not supported now.
