I don't like this addition. Our aim has been to *remove* the need
to global initializers like this, not add new ones. AFAICT the
reason you needed to add this is because you removed code from
the individual drivers which would initialize the cgroups they
required.

Two things here. First, this is driver state and so should *not* be
in the virDomainDef struct - it should be in the driver specific
private data structs.

Second, the new cgroups API you've got here is really bad. It was
an explicit design decision in the original API to *not* expose
the concept of individual cgroup controllers to the driver APIs.
The only time the drivers should can about individual controllers
is when they first create the cgroup and decide which controllers
they want to use. From then onwards the virCgroupPtr APIs should
just 'do the right thing'.

These 4 additions are a perfect example of what this new API design is
awful. The drivers now have to remember which controller they need to
use for which tunable.

I'm not going to review any more because this change is fatally flawed
from a design POV.
