we use gentoo exclusively in our servers,

we are presently using which is a vanilla kernel with a
vserver development patch that fixed a severe smp bug.

i noticed the production versions are all 2.0.x. since this unstable branch
fix was from last november or so, i can assume it made it into produciton.

if we simply install the latest production version, can i safely assume this
fix will be included regardless of the fact it is 2.0.x?

also, we will be moving to amd64 arch using multiple opteron dual core
processors for all machines except one which will remain x86. is the vserver
amd production branch 'in sync' with the x86 branch? if i used the devel
branch is it as stable as the x86 was?

any caveats with the amd branch at this time? we have no need for most of the
advanced features of linux-vserver so far and only use the most basic of
capability options.

i have been told by a close friend who does a serious amount of video
production work using the amd gentoo versions that we should only use the ~
branch of both gentoo and linux-vserver and that it would be stable for us.
he has the ~ combinations out in production in literally hundreds of
installations... comments on that?

just a bit of confusion here... our current version has proven rock stable for
us, and in this new amd environment i don't want to sacrifice this.

"...and the hordes of M$*ft users descended upon me in their anger,
and asked 'Why do you not get the viruses or the BlueScreensOfDeath
or insecure system troubles and slowness or pay through the nose 
for an OS as *we* do?!!', and I answered...'I use Linux'. "
