New 2.6.32 Kernel with stable OpenVZ (pvetest)

We just released a new kernel to the pvetest repository. This one includes the long awaited stable OpenVZ patches for 2.6.32 and also support for KSM. Additionally, this kernel will also be used (more or less) for the upcoming 2.0 beta which is expected end of Q3.

Everybody is encouraged to test and give feedback before we move it to the stable repository (and name it Proxmox VE 1.9, also new ISO image).
