My understanding is that the _kernel_ side wants to change the cgroup
API, and this means that at least in the long term current cgroup-using
applications will need to change in any case (possibly by using systemd
APIs instead). I'm not familiar with the specific case of lxc, but I
really doubt systemd would make it unusable. Generally anything must
already work with systemd to be usable on several major distros, so it
should be a reasonably safe assumption that things will work.

To me that looks like a bug in old v44, which no maintainer is using any
more. Do you have reason to believe it would be relevant to current
