Let's go with this w/o pinning.  The only necessary feature for
cgroupns is making the /proc/*/cgroups relative to its own root.  It's
not like containers can avoid trusting its outside world anyway and
playing tricks with things like this tend to lead to weird surprises
down the road.  If userland messes up, userland messes up.
