The ext2online patch was written originally on 2.0, and it has moved
relatively unscathed through 2.3.99.  However, recent changes in the
VFS and ext2 code have likely broken the patch (I'm currently developing
on 2.2, and haven't had a chance/filesystem-I-want-to-destroy for testing
on 2.4.0-current).  So, yes ext2online will work with 2.2.13.

As for the LVM patches, I can't really say, but the changes are likely
to be trivial.  Note that my LVM patch needs rawio patches for LVM snapshots,
and is made against a kernel with RAID 0.90 patches.  Both of these are
relatively easy to fix if you really want to stick with 2.2.13.
