This must be in a FAQ somewhere, but I haven't found it yet.

Is the VFS lock patch is still required, to support lvm snapshots with
journaling filesystems, for current 2.4 kernels (i.e. 2.4.31)?   If the
patch *is* still required has anyone updated it for a recent 2.4

The most recent versions of the patch that I've found seemed to go up to
2.4.20.  Has the patch been merged with the vanilla 2.4 kernel?
