    fs/kernfs: remove bogus kernfs_test_ve() check
    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,
                                     CGROUP_SUPER_MAGIC, ns);
    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!

            CT: d3cd4dca-ce04-475d-b5d5-c9ef1f24642a: stopped
    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.
