Here  it is:

<BEGIN Logical Volume Manager Changelog>

Changelog for 0.9.1_beta5 to 0.9.1_beta6
----------------------------------------

LVM
---

o **IMPORTANT** IOP version has moved back to 10, make sure tools and
kernel driver are both upgraded to beta6, if you are running beta5.

Driver
------

o Fixes to get LVM working on UltraSPARC boxes.  Note this requires an
  additional kernel patch.

o Fixed bug in lvm_do_lvcreate() in order to avoid invalid accesses
  to user space addresses in vg->lv[]

o factored lvm_get_snapshot_use_rate out of blk_ioctl

o introduced the P_DEV macro and changed some internal functions to be static

o Added VG_CREATE_OLD ioctl for IOP 10 compatibility

o Reverted IOP back to 10

o lvextend/reduce was stamping over the snapshot semaphore causing an oops.
  This fixes the reiserfs + lvextend problem reported on the mailing list

o status that a snapshot was dropped is now stored on disk in order to be
  restored correctly by vgchange

o new lvm-release.h include reflecting the version

o lvm locking is now fixed

o bmap IOCTL changes for LILO support

Tools
-----

o pvdata -U now works

o lvdisplay on an original LV no lists the active/inactive status per snapshot

o lvscan now shows the target for a snapshot LV

o vgchange now informs the administrator about dropped snapshots and restores
  them correctly in order to be able to lvremove them


Library
-------

o -fPIC flag now used when building shared libs.

Install
-------
