[linux-lvm] lvm2 and xfs ?

since I have trouble with lvm1 in a linux san environment with a multipath  
configuration I wanted to give  lvm2 a try. So I downloaded a plain 2.4.20 
kernel and patched the devicemapper (latest stable version) and then I wanted 
to apply xfs patches since I want to use xfs. It seems that the devicemapper 
and xfs are not yet compatible. No matter which patch I appply first I have 
one file (/linux/fs/buffer.c) where either of the patches will fail if the 
other one has already been applied. 

Is there anyone running lvm2 with xfs? What kernel should I use to get both 
working (in a stable fashion)?

Any comments?
