[pve-devel] [PATCH manger/container] detect containers not supporting pure cgroupv2

This series addresses the issue of running containers, which boot with a
systemd version which is too old (<232) to support the unified cgroup
hierarchy - This includes CentOS 7 and Ubuntu 16.04 containers.

The patch for pve-container simply logs to syslog with level err to notify
the user. Since container start runs through our stack into systemd
(and back into our stack), I did not see a better option (grateful for
feedback if there is of course).

One alternative might be to mount the container once in vm_start (or the
API calls), check and unmount again - but this seemed a bit expensive to do
unconditionally on every start.

The patch for pve6to7 simply loops through all containers and checks for
the condition
