VServer Context Quota

Virtual Server per Context Quota Support

This is a set of additions (patches, tools) to the virtual private servers
and security contexts
by Jacques Gélinas (make sure to visit his pages,
and/or have a look at the mailing list archive, kept by Paul Sladen, if
you are interested) and the linux quota-tools.

This is the first attempt to add per context quota support to the linux
kernel vserver project (new context, and per-context user/group quota),
so remember: THIS IS NOT CONSIDERED STABLE AT ALL.

Nevertheless it seems to work as expected, at least in my tests.
Curious how it works? Want to know what you can do with it?
Don't know what has changed since ...? See the ChangeLog.

If you are interested (and brave), get the patches below, patch your
kernel, run some tests and, last but not least, report your findings ...
