ah.. oops.. sorry. How does "Ingo's magic coding fingers" sound? :)

  The new RAID driver will likely not go into
  2.2.11, but into 2.2.12. Anyway, the new RAID 0723 release is much more
  merging-friendly wrt. LVM.

great... by the way would you have any advice about the bh->b_dev,
bh->b_rdev thing. I'm not much of a hacker, but am keen to test.

  or, considering the relative complexity of the two drivers (and the
  conceptual background), to integrate LVM into the concepts of RAID :) Or
  let them live side by side as now.

lvm into raid sounds good too. imho, layering one on top of the other
isn't optimal. Only integration of the two can be. (whichever way
isn't really important).

There is no time like the present for postponing what you ought to be doing.
