Debian Etch (stable) has support for vserver with kernel 2.6.18

http://rpm.hozac.com/dhozac/centos/5/vserver/x86_64/ contains 2.6.22
(but maybe without recent security updates for vanilla kernel)

yes, but it's hard to backport all security updates into the last
vserver supported kernel ...
i don't have problem with recompiling kernel, but which supported source
can i use for recent kernel? on many servers i'm still using supported
debian vserver kernel 2.6.18 with backported recent vanilla kernel patches,
linux-2.6 (2.6.18.dfsg.1-18etch4) stable-security; urgency=high
[SECURITY] Fix an SMP race to prevent reordering of flock updates
and accesses to the descriptor table on close().
i'm asking because i don't know in detail other distributions and their
kernel support - so if some distribution has e.g. supported 2.6.22, i can
try patch it with vserver patch ...
i read discussion about vserver patch for newer kernel, so we must use older
kernel yet ...
