I was already in the process of merging the vserver patch in the gusty kernel when I found this
thread and I would be very happy to join the effort.

I have already built the following packages using Pasztor patch :

- linux-image-2.6.22-14-vserver
- linux-headers-2.6.22-14-vserver
- linux-ubuntu-modules-2.6.22-14-vserver
- linux-restricted-modules-2.6.22-14-vserver

The kernel boots fine, the fglrx module from linux-restricted-modules also works but I have a
problem with the vserver part. All the binaries from util-vserver are core dumping without any
interresting debug messages.

I will probably continue working on this tonight to find what's wrong with the vserver part. I will
also try to clean the packages source and put that somewhere if anyone is interrested.
