That is really good stuff to know! However, I don't understand what you
mean by "adding log_info into systemd source code". How exactly do you
do that? e.g., a debug option the source configure script, a manual
alteration of source code (and how/where), etc.

If it is a cgroup issue, it is required that the kernel be built with:

CONFIG_CGROUPS (it is OK to disable all controllers)
