CVE-2012-0055
Using overlayfs with lxc causes tty problems that can kill X.
Overlayfs needs to honor the necessary cgroup permission calls.

This was only exposed from oneiric and later where we have applied

Following this email is a patch for oneiric. This is a backport of the

Proposing for oneiric.
