Hmm, the lxc* tools are not what virt-manager uses to manage containers, it
uses libvirt which has a separate userspace lxc implementation. Libvirt is
supposed to handle all the cgroup stuff automagically (well, at least on a
modern Fedora system it does).

Are you talking about virt-manager? There isn't UI in virt-manager for CPU
usage limits, what specifically do you mean? Number of CPUs? I don't think
libvirt's lxc impl does anything with that value, though just releases libvirt
1.0.4 appears to do something but I'm not sure what.
