[linux-lvm] Odd snapshot behavior



I'm seeing very odd snapshot behavior with Linux 2.4.7 and LVM 0.9.1 Beta8,
and the VFS-lock patch.  Even without the VFS-lock path, ext2 seems to cache
stuff up so the snapshot directory doesn't appear to be disabled for quite a
while.

ReiserFS
--------

Make LV (500m)
mkreiserfs
mount LV
cp something to it
make snapshot (16m)
mount snapshot
cp enough to LV to fill snapshot
sync
ls to a known directory in snapshot:
