I run LVM on a non-AC 2.4.17 Kernel without problems so somehow it must be
related to the -ac hacks.

Just to make sure I understand correctly: Is "RH patches" and "AC patches"
the same thing?

How can I apply RH patches if some of them fail?  Dont they somehow depend
on each other?

Yes I saw that, but it wasn't the answer.
