You mean don't allow creating deeper levels in cgroup hierarcy? That will
fail with libvirt + systemd as they create much deeper levels. I had to
change that for blkio.

I think in case of some controllers it does not even apply. For cpu, blkio
resources are renewable, so there is no moving around of charges.
