Is it possible today to mount a specific controller on the default
hierarchy ? Or will this capability be going in the next merge window ?
I see that there are no mount options except the __SANE__ one that the
default hierarchy takes.

We could mount the rest of the controllers in the legacy hierarchy while
mounting the cpuset controller alone in the default hierarchy and see if
this works fine.
