I see I mixed it a "little bit". I'm running 2 kernels:

1). 2.6.35 with vs2., where memory limits
     using cgroups do not work. I have no idea why...

2). 2.6.22 with vs2.2.0.7, where memory limits
     using rss.hard and rss.soft do work. Only with
     this kernel I see correct limited memory in vs-guest.

There is one more vserver-patch in my repository (2.3.1
maybe for kernel 3.x?), but it is masked as "unstable".
I'm not sure it is suitable for server, but I'll try it.
