Hi,

I recently installed the lvm patch for the 2.3.39 kernel (lvm.c-2.3.39
file) on a 2.3.40 kernel, the system hangs with a null pointer
because the "struct gendisk' changed.
To bypass the problem I comment in the file driver/block/lvm.c the
lines
(line 312...):

//      MAX_LV,                 /* maximum number of real devices */
//      lvm_geninit,            /* initialization called before we
//                                 do other things */

in the initialisation of the 'static struct gendisk  lvm_gendisk'.

Best regards.

Francis
