A few bits have been lost during the kernel merge.
Please have a look at http://linux.msede.com/lvm/doc/BUGS

In short: You need to apply a kernel patch. There is currently
no 2.3.49 patch but the 2.3.48 should work.

patch-2.3.48-lvm      - patch against kernel 2.3.48

This is not for the kernel side. It's against the LVM tools.

Hope this helps
