Since one of the things in capabilities (info from resctrl updated with data

in the works, but it's going to be way bigger than this (hence the XXX note
there), so for the time being let's workaround this.  And in order not to slow
down the domain starting, only get the capabilities if there are any cachetunes.

This BZ describes a crash if the filesystem is remounted, but you are
attempting to fix this not by fixing the code that crashed but by
re-loading the information if possibly somebody remounted it.

This does not seem to be the correct fix since you still have a race
window, where the options can be changed after the refresh is executed
and prior to using them in the code where it actually crashed.

Yeah, I'm looking at that as well.  It will need a restructuring (moving some
conf code to util - it'll also look nicer), but fix for exactly what is
happening here is enough for now.
