OpenVZ project has released a new RHEL6 based kernel. Read below for

Changes
=======
(since 042stab056.5):
[cfq] kernel BUG at block/cfq-iosched.c:386 has been fixed (PCLIN-30890)

[fuse] added possibility to disable fuse O_DIRECT with help of
fs.fuse_ext_caps sysctl (enabled by default) (debug for PSBM-13075)
[fuse] flush writeback data on file close. In particular this fixes
checkpointing (PSBM-13226)
[fuse] several other bugfixes
[quota] remounting of FS with quota on ploop could crash host (PSBM-13231)
[fs/writeback] writeback writer throttler algorithm has been enhanced
[mount namespaces] mount namespaces support for has been added. This is
required for Fedora 17 (PSBM-13004). Note: online migration support has

socket restore) fixed (PSBM-13367)

[fuse] "fs.fuse_ext_caps" sysctl has been removed. Now we need to
provide fuse mount options to enable features:
"writeback_enable" mount option to enable writeback for fuse mount
"direct_enable" mount option to enable direct IO for fuse mount
[fuse] show writeback and dio options in proc
[fuse] file release should make sure writeback is finished
[iov_iter] direct_IO_page interface has been added. Required for
efficient fuse io_kaio (PSBM-12830)
[oom] oom reports now the current fuse writeback pages counter
[time] CT uptime is calculated incorrectly in cases like host suspend
(PCLIN-30011)
[fairsched] accuracy of idle/iowait time stats reported through
/proc/stat has been increased (PCLIN-30724)
[fairsched] context switch latency on an almost idle node has been
significantly decreased (PSBM-11477)
[ploop] support for 'expanded' format to io_kaio, support for snapshot,
merge and pcopy (migrate) operations has been added (PSBM-12830)
[ploop] we support only ploop over NFS v3 => ploop mount over NFSv4 has
been prohibited (PSBM-13376)
[ploop] ploop balloon discard could ignore errors and hang (PSBM-13290)
[ovs/ipv6] kernel ABI has been restored, hypervisor modules should
compile fine now (PSBM-13383)
