The problem was likely due to not having anywhere to place pid file and
others state related information. The /run mounted on tmpfs is a
solution for that, AFAIK, and so most system should no longer face this
problem. Maybe there is others reason to not start, but based on my
experience, there is no obvious one.

Even if I think that storing pid may no longer be needed for house
keeping, thanks to systemd usage of cgroups.
