libcgroup: What replaced /usr/sbin/create_default_cgroups?

Back in the Precise days, the cgroup-bin package provided a script create_default_cgroups
This was in libcgroup source 0.37.1-1ubuntu10.1
And its role was to populate the "sysdefault" cgroup

However, in more recent releases, this script is no longer shipped with this package.
I tried doing the changelog archeology to see what should be responsible for populating this, but I came up empty from both cgroup-bin, and cgroup-lite

Presumably, something else should be responsible for creating the "sysdefault" group, that I don't have properly configured.

Thanks in advance for any pointers.
