I compared your .srpm with the one I created for mandrake. There where only
minor differences(*), but I noticed you removed dependence on the local lvm.h,
while I don't use linux/lvm.h any more.

I think it's better not to use linux/lvm.h because kernel headers may belong
to an older kernel version without lvm support. (Linus said on linux-kernel
that he prefers that /usr/include/linux and /usr/src/linux are of the kernel
version used when glibc was compiled)

On mandrake, the standard kernel doesn't support lvm, but on 7.2 it will 
probably be possible to install a 2.4 kernel optionally. linux/lvm.h will
not be available at build time.

What do you think?


(*) I did miss some minor bugfixes, and I'll upload an updated SRPM, soon.
