You said you have "to go with RHEL for the future". I was just pointing
out that if you change the kernel, in a RHEL system, you're no longer
running RHEL. The whole system is unsupported by RH.

Just guessing: In TT mode the (UML) processes appear as host threads.
Maybe the host's kernel/glibc is doing it's magic...
I don't think the a 2.6 uml would work better in this case, but you're
welcome to test. I can't tell anything about plans to support this,
maybe one of the developers?

Do you know if that fs' glibc was compiled with NTPL support? Can you
recompile glibc without NTPL and test?
Also, some people reported some success calling UML with:
$ i386 linux ubd0=root_fs [...]
Hope that helps.
