2.6.9 kernel is not vulnerable.

For 2.6.18 kernels, see last messages on the announce@ list:
http://openvz.org/pipermail/announce/2008-February/thread.html

2.6.20 and 2.6.22 kernels are not maintained anymore, we recommend you 
to switch to rhel5-2.6.18 (for production environments) or maybe to 
2.6.24 (for bleeding edge).

2.6.24 git tree is now synced with latest 2.6.24.2 which contains the 
needed fix.

Regards,
  Kir.
