OpenVZ project has released a new RHEL6 based testing kernel. Read below
for more information. Everyone using this kernel branch is advised to

NOTE this is a *testing* kernel, not recommended for production.

(since 042stab054.3)

* [raid] [minor] avoid deadlock on RAID1/RAID10 during resync recover
* [ubc] [minor] livelock in bdev cache allocation fixed
* [cpt] [minor] a CT with tun device inside could not be migrated twice
* [ploop] [minor] ENOSPC threshold defaults set: 2Gb for root, 4Gb for 
users. These thresholds can be changed via ploop.ko parameters
* [ploop] [minor] debug messages on error paths added
* [ubc] [minor] UB ram limit check skipped for __GFP_NOFAIL allocations. 
This prevents possible deadlocks.
* [ploop] [minor] max disk-space preallocation limited to 128MB 
independently on ploop cluster-block size. This reduces initial size of 
ploop image
