Thank you for that -- very helpful!

- Test (should also be posted here, so that others can test as well)

Test done:

  - Download, compiled and ran futextest [1].
  - Saved the output on a text file.
  - Upgraded the kernel related packages:
    2.6.32-5-vserver-amd64=2.6.32-48squeeze6 -> 2.6.32-5-vserver-amd64=2.6.32-48squeeze7

linux-image-2.6.32-5-amd64_2.6.32-48squeeze7 here

  - Reboot with the new kernel.
  - Ran futextest again.
  - Compared the output with the previous one:
    Nothing relevant. Everything passed. Only minor differences on the performance
    that are explained because of the different load on the machine at both moments.

We've been running on some test systems for several days now, with no problems. Again, everything passed.

Additionally, futextest run on identical[1] systems running the older kernel produces nearly identical results to futextest run on the systems with the new kernel.

[1] staging systems on xen VMs running on the same host with the same packages installed (only difference is the kernel) and services running
