Hmm.

Could you fix error code in create blkio cgroup ? It returns -EINVAL now.
IIUC, mkdir(2) doesn't return -EINVAL as error code (from man.)
Then, it's very confusing. I think -EPERM or -ENOMEM will be much better.

Anyway, I need to see source code of blk-cgroup.c to know why libvirt fails
to create cgroup. Where is the user-visible information (in RHEL or Fedora)
about "you can't use blkio-cgroup via libvirt or libcgroup" ?

Thanks,
-Kame
