I'm not sure, but I believe "0" here means all cpu, and not pin to cpu 0?

Try changing this to "1", "0-0", and "1-2". Observe the difference.

g) and h) read files from /proc, not cgroup. You need lxcfs. You should
already have that on ubuntu though.

If this is a new install, I highly suggest you just switch to ubuntu 18.04
+ lxd-3 host.
If you simply want to have "correct" /proc entries, make sure lxcfs is
installed, and then restart lxd (if needed).
