Does anybody here know how to disable transparent huge page migration
on current debian squeeze kernels? I can not find the /sys path
mentioned in the bug report:

openvz01:~# find /proc/|grep hugepage
openvz01:~# find /sys|grep hugepage

This is on squeeze kernel 2.6.32-5-amd64 with and without openvz patches.

So, how can I implement the workaround from the bugreport? Is
/proc/sys/vm/hugepages_treat_as_movable what I'm looking for? Because
that's already 0.

Any insight would be greatly appreciated, as glusterfs is a major pita
with NFS due to the memory leak, and with FUSE due to the process
hangs. I'd like to work around at least one of these problems.

With normal use, glusterfs is factually unsuitable for production and
only still in use here because we already have large amounts of data
on it that are difficult to migrate.

What irks me most is the "Priority: medium" and "Severity: low"
classifications in that particular bug report. There doesn't seem to
be any problem awareness :(

That being said, I of course appreciate the work being done by the
developers and hope there is a great future for the product.
