Backporting 099619957a0 to xenial will mean that systemd will gain ability to use cgroups2 as shipped in the xenial's ga v4.4 kernel.

it will mean that xenial containers on top of bionic's ga kernel will fail to use cgroups2.

however at the time it was an experimental feature which was not widely used at all, and there are likely to be very few users of it.

it would be nice to if backport of 099619957a0 was done in a backwards-compatible way and allow using cgroups2 like code paths using both pre-v4.4 and v4.4+ kernels.
