Are you saying that usage of the resctrlfs filesystem should not be
allowed after libvirt starts? I don't think this is correct.

> we will scan for all directors while the libvirt daemon begin running, and libvirt will remove exist directories if no tasks inside of it.

Well, this means that only libvirt can use the resctrlfs filesystem.

This forbids other applications which require allocation
of CAT resources from being used. 

Its simple to fix it: move the scanning of resctrlfs data from libvirt
initialization time to:

	- VM initialization time
	and
	- virConnectGetCapabilities time

The second case is necessary to get updated free space information.
