We accidently synced lxcfs a little while back and that caused a fair
amount of breakage so that's why I've been keeping that delta.

lxcfs uploads are automatically backported all the way down to precise,
so it's going to be a while until we can completely drop this part.

That being said, we may be able to convince our Debian friends to turn
this into:

 systemd | cgroupfs-mount | cgroup-lite

Which should then work fine everywhere and avoid us having to carry that
delta for another 3 years.
