I researched cgroups a bit and it seems that /sys/fs/cgroup/hugetlb is for 
configuration of hugetlb and that cgroups themselves don't require hugetlb - 
and neither does elogind.

There could be any number of reasons hugetlb doesn't work (custom kernel config 

We could use (file-exists? "/proc/sys/vm/nr_hugepages") in order to test for 
hugetlb support.  The proc filesystem is already mounted at this point.

Alternatively, it would be possible to use (needed-for-boot? #f) for the 
hugetlb cgroup file-system.  In that case, maybe failure isn't so bad.  I 
didn't test that, however.

If we want to make this ARM-specific we can do that too, but I think it's more 
general than that.
