Acually i stoped to maintain the patches, the one above have a small bug
(don't unbind ports in a vserver) it was more meant as an example for
discussion and inclusion in the main vserver patch. The Idea was to
provide tow ip/mask pairs to chbind, so it becomes possible to bind to 2
ip-ranges (the first IP is the default) and masking out which bits in an
IP are immutable. Later the vserver-user should be able to constrain the
range to a subset of his available IP's. The usage is straightforward
(look in chbind.c) chbind got a few more options
(--ip1/--mask1/--net2/--mask2) thats all. This days i have no time to work
on it(i got married today :) ). In January i will fix the bugs and sync it
with te actual vserver release. But i still would like to see it included
in the main trunk if there is intrest of it, since i dont want to maintain
a 50 lines patch in parallel.

greetings Christian
