I am interested to help you on this. I am not familiar with the 
development on Android, I guess we have to check first the kernel 
version it is running on. Is it the ? And then check the 
namespace + cgroup functionalities are compiled in.

Do you know if there is a virtual machine for Android which facilitate 
the development ? As well as a configuration file for the kernel ?

lxc uses some recent syscalls (timerfd, signalfd, etc ...) we have to 
check the corresponding C functions are available in this 'lic' library.
