Yes, we're definitely not supporting Vswap until after we move to
RHEL6'ish kernels.

I recommend staying with our RHEL5'ish kernels for now, but if you like
to experiment, you may try OpenVZ's RHEL6'ish kernels as well.
Installing them may be a bit tricky because they use initrd in their
builds and we don't - at least you'd need to add mkinitrd first.
