cgroups now also use kernfs subsystem. kernfs_test_ve() check breaks
it when we try to mount cgroup from ve.

cgroup1_mount() tries to reuse the existing superblock by calling
kernfs_pin_sb to pin it during mount operation

		pinned_sb = kernfs_pin_sb(root->kf_root, NULL);

Then it calls cgroup_do_mount() which fails to reuse the existing
superblock because of failed kernfs_test_ve() check, so instead
it creates a new one:

	dentry = cgroup_do_mount(&cgroup_fs_type, flags, root,

So now we have two superblocks instead of one which may lead to
the double percpu_ref_kill_and_confirm() call. E.g. :

umount /sys/fs/cgroup/rdma
vzctl exec CTID umount /sys/fs/cgroup/rdma

	------------[ cut here ]------------
	percpu_ref_kill_and_confirm called more than once on css_release!

Remove the kernfs_test_ve() check to fix this.

As for sysfs which is also uses kernfs, I don't think it gonna cause
something bad. Sysfs uses net namespaces (info->ns && sb_info->ns) which
should be enough for us. We enter CT's net ns before mounting sysfs in CT.

Also note that commands like "vzctl set 101 --netif_add eth0 --save"
calls ip util (which mount sysfs) from ve0 and CT's net namespace.
So with the removal of kernfs_test_ve() check kernfs_test_super()
now return success instead of fail as before. Which is totally
fine IMO, as we reuse the existing CT's sysfs superblock
instead of creating a new one.
