This probably depends on how many files from android kernel differ from kernels and if/how many of them are touched by linux-vserver.

The best hint would be provided by an attempt to apply linux-vserver
patch on top of android kernel. The number of files patch complains
about would be a nice indicator (be it rejects or just offsets).

Please report back with the list of files with rejects or hunk offsets
and tell us what liux-vserver you used for what version of android kernel.

I would think there should no be too many conflicts though I don't know
how much of android tree additions are drivers (should not conflict with
l-v) or affect core (which is much more prone to conflicts - a good
candidate might be suspend blockers)
