Subject[PATCH] cgroup: add a validation check to cgroup_add_cftyps()
Fengguang reported this bug:

BUG: unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at 0000003c
IP: [<cc90b4ad>] cgroup_cfts_commit+0x27/0x1c1
...
Call Trace:
[<cc9d1129>] ? kmem_cache_alloc_trace+0x33f/0x3b7
[<cc90c6fc>] cgroup_add_cftypes+0x8f/0xca
[<cd78b646>] cgroup_init+0x6a/0x26a
[<cd764d7d>] start_kernel+0x4d7/0x57a
[<cd7642ef>] i386_start_kernel+0x92/0x96

This happens in a corner case. If CGROUP_SCHED=y but CFS_BANDWIDTH=n &&
FAIR_GROUP_SCHED=n && RT_GROUP_SCHED=n, we have:

cpu_files[] = {
{ } /* terminate */
}

When we pass cpu_files to cgroup_apply_cftypes(), as cpu_files[0].ss
is NULL, we'll access NULL pointer.

The bug was introduced by commit de00ffa56ea3132c6013fc8f07133b8a1014cf53
("cgroup: make cgroup_subsys->base_cftypes use cgroup_add_cftypes()").
