I have LVM working with hibernate w/o any problems (w/ ext3). If there 
were a problem it wouldn't be with LVM but with device-mapper, and I 
doubt there's a problem with either. The stack trace shows that you're 
within XFS code (but it's likely its hibernate).

You can easily check whether its LVM/device-mapper:

1) check "dmsetup table" - it should be the same before hibernating and 
after resuming.

2) read directly from the LV - ie, "dd if=/dev/mapper/video_vg-video_lv 
of=/dev/null bs=10M count=200".

If dmsetup shows the same info and you can read directly from the LV I 
doubt it would be a LVM/device-mapper problem.
