actually there were some patches floating for 2.5.18 and there were some 
patches in -dj as well but i've not tried -dj since 2.5.25 i think
you can find the patch for 2.5.18 on linuxhq's unofficial patches for 2.5

and may be evms is getting in shape so we can use it in order to have access to 
our lvm volumes
