SCALE8x, OpenVZ goodies, and new kernels (including 2.6.32)

I am flying from Moscow to Los Angeles tomorrow. It's 13 hours in the air but right to the place I need (and want) to be -- SCALE8x. Just before SCALE, though, I will be in San Francisco for a day and a half -- let me know if you want to meet for a glass of beer or shot of coffee. No vodka, I only drink it when it's cold. Right, Moscow is very cold in the winter...

My plans about new t-shirts for SCALE are not fulfilled; instead I want to print some stickers/labels and maybe something like postcards. I am still designing those, hope to print overnight at Fedex Office when I arrive. An OpenVZ sticker is what I always wanted personally -- my notebook cover carries a lot of stickers (mostly related to GNU and Linux), but OpenVZ one is missing. So I am kinda using my official position to get what I want :) -- if I am not mistaken the correct English word is jobbery.

In the meantime, and this is now fully official, OpenVZ kernel team is working on porting our stuff to Linux kernel 2.6.32. This will take about a month, and we hope to have it working in time to include into next Debian release.

While 2.6.32 is some time away, we keep updating our stable (RHEL5-based) kernel. You can have a sneak preview of newest kernel changelog here. One feature worth noticing is added support for signalfd() syscall which is desperately needed by late versions of udevd and thus all the latest distros (like Fedora 12 and Ubuntu 9.10) which you might want to run in a container.
