Sorry for having missed that bug. I'm trying to solve the RC bug in
unstable that is preventing LXC's migration. Having tried to have
upstream give in some time to it, they released 4.0.4 that should have
solved the issue, but actually it seems it didn't.

Waiting from Inaki to give me a full trace to see if it's another issue
with the same symptoms, I'd be glad if you accept that LXC stays a bit
more in that unmerged state until we get the issue fixed.

I appreciate that we can't keep it that way forever, and I hope to have
LXC's devs help me a bit more in a close future.

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