In practice I suspect that it's a rare usage outside of manual
playing/testing - any real production system is going to want to be
aware of what subsystems are available and decide which to mount on
each hierarchy.

I think that the readability benefits in cgroup.c would be outweighed
by having two different subsys include files.
