[linux-lvm] super.c failing in kernel compile

Please disregard this post. I found, in going through the process, that the
cause was the VFS-patch. I fat-fingered the patch command, and instead of
applying linux-2.4.19-VFS-lock.patch, I applied linux-2.4.9-VFS-lock.patch.

Sorry to post a question then answer it.
