Andreas _please_ read my emails
i said that my fix was trashed due to fs failure, i will post it to
the list as soon as i write it again.
i posted what i remembered, tomorrow i dun't have to work so i will look
into it.
i also watch for fixes, i even made a nice big patch encmpassing
everithing that went on the list, sadly it was on a reiserfs fs.

I probably dinna specify but it i am running 2.4.0-test7pre5
so i can confirm reiserfs not working on raid+lvm with 2.4
AFAIR the problem with journaling and raid was due to raid's usage
of the buffer cache during recnstruction, there was no reconstrucion
happening on my system. i will also try reiserfs on raid without
lvm, i cannot try ext3 since there isn't any patch for 2.4
