My question is as following, which kernels* support LXC ?

The following is a blog post explaining how one can run lxc on Android:
www DOT stgraber DOT org/2013/12/23/lxc-1-0-some-more-advanced-container-usage

For those unfamiliar with LXC, it can kinda be used like a virtual machine but with less resources. Currently there is a limitation that it can run only on linux flavors with the correct kernel and mac with less resources.

Docker is program that simplifies using LXC for containerization. (It was started using only LXC as its backend, but now there is support for more backends.) It has a simple, visual explanation of the difference between Virtaul Machines and containers on the following page:

Example use case:
