hmmm... I think that access to the cgroup inside container is very risk
because I am able to manage for example memory resources (what if I am not
the host owner and... I can give me via non-secure mounted /cgroup (inside
container) all available memory resources...).
I think that the /proc/meminfo should be pass to the container in the other
way, but this is the topic for the other thread.
