Too bad. AFAIK kernel 2.6.16 was intended to be supported for a longer time
with security updates, so I thougth there could be a longer-maintained
patch :)

I think I can't follow your thoughts here :) Should I try to patch a vanilla with patch- or what do you mean?
I'm also ready to test a pre-made with XEN and vserver patches
applyed as long as it won't eat up my server :)

Well, I've reported the XEN problem some time ago (even with severity set to
important) but nobody cared about it till today (well, they have a lot of
other important bugs :)). I would have to build up a development system to
report this bugs 'cause the system itself is intended to be productive
(more or less, it's a home server). I hope I find some free time the next
