I had no problem using the unstable branch for "util-vserver". I needed it,
because the sarge-versions are simply too old.

I compiled a vanilla-kernel ( with the patch- I
did this the traditional way, but the "debian-way" (make-kpgk) should work
too. That way you have your packaged kernel (but I guess you knew that ;) ).
Btw: I used the original config from debian (/boot/config.xxx).

Then I compiled the sources from debian-sid for util-vserver. You can find a
short summary here:

Using "apt-get -t unstable" should work too, but I preferred compiling it
myself. When a new version comes out, I simply patch a new kernel and make new
packages from sid's sources and "dpkg -i" them.

I'll have to meditate about this...
