In order for me to make this work, I backed out the RAID changes
in ll_rw_blk.c. There should be a message in the archives where I
detail exactly which patches I had to back out to make things work.
Looking back on it, I wish that I had been able to leave the
RAID changes in, because I think I would rather have the RAID code
handle RAID0 striping instead of LVM. Seems cleaner somehow.
