Re: [linux-lvm] LVM patch for kernel 2.2.17?

I have already made a version of LVM 0.8final available for Linux 2.2.16 +
2.2.17-pre patches, which _should_ work for 2.2.17 as well, although the
snapshot feature depends on some 2.4 code which is only available for 2.2
as a patch.

It is available online at ftp://ftp.stelias.com/pub/adilger/

I even worked a bit on it last week and #ifdef'd out code for the snapshot
feature (which doesn't work with journalled filesystems anyways, AFAIK),
so it should be able to work with a stock 2.2.16 kernel, but I haven't
tested that yet, and this code isn't available yet...

Yes, it _would_ be nice if Heinz made an "official" release of 0.8final
for 2.2, but he hasn't done it any of the previous times someone asked
in the past few months, so I don't expect he will do it now either.

Cheers, Andreas
