Bug#595964: Please cherry-pick patch to mount cgroupfs at /sys/fs/cgroup

Package: linux-2.6
Version: 2.6.32-21
Severity: wishlist
File: /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.32-5-686


please consider cherry-picking the patch to mount cgroupfs at
/sys/fs/cgroup [1]. This patch will be in upstream 2.6.36 and has been
acked by the kernel cgroup and libcgroup maintainer.
Having it in the default Debian kernel would simplify running systemd, which
uses cgroups to monitor processes.
Without this patch, the cgroupfs for systemd will be mounted at /cgroup
and it would be preferable to not introduce another toplevel directory.

Thanks for considering,
