Subject: [PATCH] cgroup: Delete unnecessary if statement in css_visible()

css_visible() is called in either cgroup_apply_control_enable()
or cgroup_apply_control_disable().
In cgroup_apply_control_enable(), we have checked ss_mask before calling
css_visible(), so there is no need to do the same thing again.
In cgroup_apply_control_disable():
 - If css->parent is not NULL, we have checked ss_mask in the
   second condition, so there is no need to do the same thing again.
 - If css->parent is NULL, dsct is root cgroup so the deleted if
   statement is always false and there is no need to keep it.
