Some people have been crashing on a regular basis with ctx-16. Also someone posted
a script crashing a box in no time. So I guess ctx-16-1 will be proven real soon.
wait a few days.

I will rename ctx-16-1 as ctx-17 so we will have a stable kernel. ctx-16 is adding
true BIND-any support compared to ctx-13. Better handling of UDP on loopback
as well.

Said differently, with ctx-16, there is less things to explain (less restrictions).

Right after ctx-17, I will release ctx-18 with per vserver file handle limitation
and per vserver memory limitation. The file handle stuff is done. The memory
still has a bug.

vserver: run general purpose virtual servers on one box, full speed!
