	Ted Ts'o, just replied to my patch, and said that my one line fix, was
backwards.  I did the diff in the wrong order.  I applied the patch, and
it applied cleanly 1.32, but of course I didn't test it, it applied
cleanly.  The proper fix was added in 1.29 according to Ted.  So all of
the current mount and fsck programs should work properly with LVM.  The
trival fix is easy to see if you need to fix up the old code.

	Some days I'm just a really bad programmer...
