LVM2 is a purely user space application - there are no kernel components
to LVM itself. Instead, it uses the general device-mapper framework to
manage mapped devices. This is part of the mainline 2.6 kernel (you'll
find the code in the drivers/md directory in the kernel sources).
LVM2 sources are available here:
