that should be it.  My fstab has:

/dev/lv/snap    /snap           reiserfs  defaults,ro,noauto    0       0 

I did not add any other patches for lvm/reiserfs other than what you have above.

My impression with the above bug is that the snapshot is filling much too quickly
and getting disabled.  At this point seg faults start happening.
