1. lvm2 should not freeze - it would be some horrible bug.

2. You can't kill any userspace app which is blocked in an uninterruptible 
kernel function - kill always wait till it gets to signal handler  (i.e. you 
are opening&reading suspended device might be one such operation)

3. You need to tell us more about what you are doing - as without this there 
is no way to give meaningful help.
