I tried it. About a 1% improvement. I have a crapy IBM server that needed the enterprise kernel for more than 1 gig ram. So I caried this concept through to the dell poweredge servers. Oops. Thanks

p.s. These poweredge machines (still) rock! The PowerVault fans are loud enough I had to move them away from people.

2: I did: sudo rpm -Uvh openss*.rpm (to get ssh and ssl) and sshd died. Probably during restart. I was remote, with no telnet, only ssh. Couldn't get back in :(

There was some weirdness in how stopping daemons was done -- it should
be resolved in the current initscripts from Raw Hide.  If you restart
it, then log in remotely and restart it again, and it still cuts you
off, then something's wrong.

I had since updates initscripts. I reverted back to openssh-2.3.0p1-16, then (re)updated to openssh-2.5.1p1-7. Worked as expected.
