[libvirt] [PATCH 2/2] lxc: Fail connection attempt if cgroups not mounted



Currently a user can connect to lxc:/// if cgroups aren't mounted, but
they can't do a whole lot: starting and even stopping guests doesn't work
(the latter only if cgroups were unmounted behind libvirts back). To make
matters worse, even after mounting cgroups, libvirt must be restarted
to actually notice.

This is frustrating for users who may make it all the way to the end of
the virt-manager 'New VM' wizard only to receive an error that requires
a libvirtd restart.

Fix this by checking for cgroup mounts at lxc:/// connect time, and
if none are found, fail the connection.

I'm not sure if there are any negative consequences to putting this
logic in lxcOpen...
