Bug description:
  Cgroup namespaces are a new kernel feature which allows virtualizing a
  container's /proc/self/cgroups and the root of future cgroupfs mounts,
  to make the container appear as though it is in the / cgroup.  This is
  one of the pieces needed to be able to run, for instance, docker in a
  lxd container.

  Cgroup namespaces are implemented by a patchset which is currently in
  linux-next.  A patchset ported to the master-next branch of the xenial
  kernel tree is at http://people.canonical.com/~serge/patches.v2/
