Description Elias Probst 2010-01-30 05:56:21 UTC
In Kernel 2.6.32 a feature (KSM) for memory pages deduplication was introduced which allows to greatly reduce the memory usage e.g. when running multiple VMs.

To be able to use this feature, >=sys-kernel/linux-headers-2.6.32 is needed + a recompile of glibc.

Please provide recent linux-headers as soon as possible.

Reproducible: Always
