That's not a CentOS kernel, it's an openvz kernel that is not provided
by CentOS.  The fixes and workarounds shown on the internet will not
work with that kernel.

I suggest you find a better VPS provider, what you have is essentially a
glorified chroot, not a real VPS and there are many aspects of CentOS
that are simply broken in that model.
