After adding a few minor things (see patch-2.3.47-lvm on the ftp server)
i was able to compile 2.3.47 with LVM. No problems besides the ones
mentioned in the patch which are not related.
Maybe your kernel source has been corrupted by a patch?

According to Heinz some symbol exports might currently be missed in
the merge to 2.3.47 which might affect people using LVM 0.8final as a
module. But this does not seem related to your problem either.

In addition, at least for glibc2.1 a minor patch against the new user
mode tools is required as well (see patch-lvm_0.8final on the ftp server).


Hope this helps
Michael
