-Subject: [PATCH] vircgroup: Ensure /machine group is associated with its
- parent.
-
-Call first virCgroupNew on the parent group virCgroupNewPartition if
-it is available on before the creation of the child group.  This
-ensures that the creation of a first level group on the unified
-architecture, as the check at virCgroupV2ParseControllersFile as the
-parent file is there.
