    kernfs/ve: ignore kernfs 've_perms_map' in cgroups.
    Kernfs implements file permissions logic, that relies on
    (struct kernfs_node).ve_perms_map. In VZ8 cgroups have been modified
    to use kernfs, but cgroups do not benefit from using ve_perms_map in
    any way so it's left uninitialized in cgroup code. There is no clear
    way of implementing any kind of stub ve_perms_map for cgroups, so it
    seems the best logic is to allow the field exist as NULL for those
    who uses kernfs but don't wish to use ve_perms_map.
