Control: severity -1 normal


Thanks for reporting this. The main issue with starting the container
does not seem to have anything to do with the failing cgroup_rmdir calls
even though I admit they shouldn't occur. The main issue lies in
"""lxc-start 20191204112931.790 ERROR lxc_cgfs - cgroups/cgfs.c:lxc_cgroupfs_create:901 - Could
not find writable mount point for cgroup hierarchy 11 while trying to create cgroup."""

A fix has been released in 2.0.8 by upstream, and I'll have a look at
the possibility to have this version released in stretch.

But, this bug is not as grave as you seem to think. I'm therefore
lowering the severity of the bug to the appropriate level.

With best regards,

It's far easier to fight for one's principles than to live up to them.
