the user at .service (and thus user-session at .service from user-session-units) have:

ControlGroup=%R/user/%I/shared cpu:/ ...

and we've had to symlink the instances as user@<uid>.service since v185 or so..

Now, just from a sanity perspective I really think we should be using
uid's here and not usernames, just like /run/user/<uid>...
