Cgroups are principally a resource control mechanism for processes.
There are countless tunables, and a libvirt will use certain ones,
specifically for QEMU it currently uses the 'cpu' and 'devices'
controllers, while LXC also uses 'memory' and 'cpuacct'.
You can activate it by mounting the desired controllers before libvirtd
mount -t cgroup none /dev/cgroup -o cpu,memory,devices

That's because this is a new feature. It is optional, hence why it is
merely a warning message, and not an error message.

Can you capture a stack trace in GDB, and/or get the debug logs from
running with LIBVIRT_DEBUG=1. There could be a thousand & one other
things being done between the time the warning
message is printed, and
it actually crashes, so we can't assume they're neccessarily related
