A while back IBM posted a patch to LVM that constructs a log device with
a mirror and then creates the real mirror using such a mirrored log
device. I think this may solve your problem. It was completely written
in LVM and Stefan refreshed it to the latest LVM.

Anyone thinks this user level only solution is any better? We will be
very happy to have any one of the solutions in upstream!

Here is a link the posted patch
