To clarify this: We never required any cgroup controllers, and we never
required audit. And that's not changing.

Right in contrast to what you are suggesting we actually make more and
more optional of systemd. For example, in systemd git PolicyKit is not
only runtime-optional (which it has been for a long time) but now also
compile-time optional. And there's more...

So, yeah, let's just fix the audit issue and that's it.
