Strangely, in 2.4 lvm_make_request() we totally ignore the return code from
lvm_map() and always return 1.  This should also be fixed after lvm_map()
no longer returns the snapshot error codes.  There is currently a thread
on l-k (cc'd to linux-lvm) which is discussing this very issue.  A good
time to clean this whole thing up.

Cheers, Andreas
