2.6.32 and 3.2.81-1

When upgrading from wheezy to jessie there is no forced kernel update to 3.16! The host system running the 2.6.32 kernel will not be able to update (OpenVZ container will all have 2.6.32 kernels). I think a lot of people migrating from wheezy to jessie might run into this problem. I've some machines in the cluster left that will have the same problem. Is this assumed to be a bug then? In systemd or PoweDNS?
