I'm taking care of openvz, please file a bug report with severity
important including the patch or link to patch, so that it can be added.
if it does not break ABI it is easiest to add to next stable release,
if it does i'll add it to the queued ABI breaking patches.
did you test that?
thanks + kind regards
