I am using the one of debian squeeze:

root at mybox /root/zoobab/openwrt-openvz [5]# vzctl --version
vzctl version 3.0.24

Will check in the debian sources if the patch was applied or not.

"In July 2005, after several failed attempts to legalise software
patents in Europe, the patent establishment changed its strategy.
Instead of explicitly seeking to sanction the patentability of
software, they are now seeking to create a central European patent
court, which would establish and enforce patentability rules in their
favor, without any possibility of correction by competing courts or
democratically elected legislators."
