I now have a simple pair of scripts that let me run accellerated
opengl apps inside an LXC container on Ubuntu 12.04.

I create the container with

Then I start it, and run this:

This does most of the setup, and tells you how to start up the server
with startx.

Thanks to John Lane, whose post
showed all the needed steps; I just updated it slightly for Ubuntu 12.04.

Two remaining mysteries:
- I have to edit /etc/X11/Xwrapper.config for the user to be able to
run startx (otherwise it's upset that the user is on the wrong vt, or
- I couldn't get the mouse working until I added a window manager to
.xinitrc.  Probably user error somehow.

(Now to try creating a buildbot slave using this to run unit tests
that depend on fast opengl!)
