Using /mnt/cgroup is definitely wrong. FHS says that /mnt is reserved as a
temporary mountpoint for local use.
If there is a consensus upstream that /sys/fs/cgroup is the right place for
this filesystem, and this is needed in squeeze (rather than just for
systemd) then I think we would add that directory in the kernel package for
squeeze. Otherwise, this is for wheezy (and current experimental) only.
We get into the habit of living before acquiring the habit of thinking.
