Ok, experimental lvm-base, lvm-iop6 and lvm-iop10 RPM packages available
at http://distro.conectiva.com.br/experimental/lvm. They certainly need
improvements, but I'm able to transparently switch back and forth between
IOP 6 and IOP 10.

To get the packages using APT, add the following lines to sources.list:

rpm http://distro.conectiva.com.br/experimental lvm/conectiva main
rpm-src http://distro.conectiva.com.br/experimental lvm/conectiva main
