What kind of system are you on?  On ubuntu you'll generally have the
cgroup-lite package installed, so that /sys/fs/cgroup/ has one
subdirectory for each cgroup controller.  So/sys/fs/cgroup/cpu has
the cpu controller mounted, /sys/fs/cgroup/freezer has the freezer
subsystem, etc.

What is the virtual machine manager?  Sounds like you're using

/proc/cpuinfo will not reflect limits set by cgroups.
