That's fine, I'm not changing that ability at all. We just need a
"default" mount point for "normal" users.

Lennart and Kay, is this what systemd is doing? I really don't think we
should be adding a root /cgroup/ mount point to the system for something
like this.

Maybe /dev/cgroup/ is better to use, as that way users can create
sub-mount points easier. They can't do that in /sys/fs/cgroup/
