[Users] resource limits don't apply immediately on 2.6.24

I'm used to having resource limits apply immediately on 2.6.18 kernel
releases of OpenVZ. I run "vzctl set VEID --privvmpages soft:hard
--save" and "free" in the virtual machine reports the new figure right

This is not the case on 2.6.24-19-openvz Ubuntu kernel, where
user_beancounters report the newer figure and the virtual machine
would report the newer figure if I restarted it, however the change
doesn't apply online.

Is this a feature or a bug?
