I remember that this patch was the result of a discussion with ldv. I
didn't want to add complex support for different versions of cgroups. The
idea was that the admin would prepare the system for use of cgroups by the
hasher-privd daemon.

I'm not considering the hasher-privd as an end user server. This is a
low-level server on which you can build different solutions. I don't mean
just hasher. With this in mind, I don't think that this server should do
everything out of the box without configuration.

Does this make sense to you?
