This patch has ben acked by
Paul Menage <menage@google.com> and
Dhaval Giani <dhaval.giani@gmail.com>

Afaik Dhaval is the libcgroup upstream developer and Paul is the maintainer of
the kernel cgroup code. And also as mentioned before, it will be in 2.6.36. I
guess this can be considered as consensus upstream.

As we usually try to support running the old kernel from release (squeeze) in
release+1(wheezy), this patch would ensure that systemd would easily run with a
squeeze kernel (without any ugly workarounds). It would be future-proofing if
you will.


Why is it that all of the instruments seeking intelligent life in the
universe are pointed away from Earth?
