One of the things that bothers me a bit about this thread issue is quite why such old kernels are still in use. 2.6.12 was 2005 - even Debian, notoriously conservative, is using 4.4+ I’m sure there must be good reasons for such a long hold-back but it seems strange to try to hobble the VM for such arcana.
