The problem is that necessary parts of the LVM stock kernel patch
didn't make it in and that i was to busy to get back to Linus
about that.

Have send him another patch vs. 2.3.49 which will hopefully show
up soon...

Till then you can add the full LVM patch from linux.msede.com on your own.

Sorry about the inconvenience.
