What is the output of 'virsh --connect lxc:/// capabilities'? Mine looks like:

<capabilities>

  <host>
    <cpu>
      <arch>x86_64</arch>
    </cpu>
    <topology>
      <cells num='1'>
        <cell id='0'>
          <cpus num='2'>
            <cpu id='0'/>
            <cpu id='1'/>
          </cpus>
        </cell>
      </cells>
    </topology>
  </host>

  <guest>
    <os_type>exe</os_type>
    <arch name='x86_64'>
      <wordsize>32</wordsize>
      <emulator>/usr/libexec/libvirt_lxc</emulator>
      <domain type='lxc'>
      </domain>
    </arch>
  </guest>

</capabilities>


And I can define your posted config without error. If you don't have a guest
block, defining any guest will fail, so the lxc capability detection probably
needs to be taught how to work with your system. You can checkout out
src/lxc/lxc_conf.c:lxcCapsInit
