Bug Description

LXCFS upstream released LXCFS 2.0.7 as a bugfix release with following changelog:
 - Remove unused variable
 - Also check next variable for NULL on cg_rmdir
 - virtualize the 'btime' field of /proc/stat
 - cleanup: return false instead of NULL as bool
 - Limit memswlimit by TotalSwap
 - pam_cgfs: remove dead assignment
 - pam_cgfs: return created directly
 - pam_cgfs: make sure that **p is not NULL
 - bindings: Want space for ints? Call sizeof(int)!
 - pam_cgfs: make trim() safer
 - pam_cgfs: error out on failure in cgv2_init()
 - pam_cgfs: remove dead assignment
 - bindings: implement guest nice
 - bindings: increase reserved buffer size a little

Just like Ubuntu itself, upstream releases long term support releases, as is 2.0 and then periodic point releases including all the accumulated bugfixes.

Only the latest upstream release gets full support from the upstream developers, everyone else is expected to first update to it before receiving any kind of support.

This bugfix release has already been uploaded to Zesty and automatically backported in the upstream PPAs for all Ubuntu releases. So far without any reported regression.

This should qualify under the minor upstream bugfix release allowance of the SRU policy, letting us SRU this without paperwork for every single change included in this upstream release.

Once the SRU hits -updates, we will be backporting this to trusty-backports as well, making sure we have the same version everywhere.
