The precise answer depends on which version of systemd you have. In
any systemd host though, systemd should ensure all the filesystems
are mounted correctly. If you have libvirt >= 1.1.1 and systemd >= 205
then you can use its "slice" and "scope" concepts to setup grouping
of VMs. If you have older systemd,  then you have to setup groups
manually. There's some guidance on setting up groups here


If you have systemd >= 205 then you can ignore cgconfig.conf entirely.
For earlier version, you can use cgconfig.conf to setup the groups
