I see that docker works, but I haven't had any luck with podman despite hours of debugging. Is this something that should work?

The cause seems to be that the "pids" cgroup controller isn't made available:

```
$ podman run hello-world
Error: OCI runtime error: the requested cgroup controller `pids` is not available

$ cat "/sys/fs/cgroup/user.slice/user-$(id -u).slice/user@$(id -u).service/cgroup.controllers"
(no output)
```

I've followed the relevant FAQ in podman's troubleshooting guide, but there's no change in behavior.
