BTW, much as I'd like to get to the bottom of this, let's get you up
and running first.  I'd suggest you create a systemd service which starts
at boot which creates and configures cgroups called /sys/fs/cgroup/*/forcontainers
and chowns them to your userid.  Then for convenience a enter-container-cgroups
script which just does echo $$ > /sys/fs/cgroup/*/forcontainers/tasks.  Then
just run enter-container-cgroups before you lxc-start -n containerX
