[linux-lvm] Need help with LVM on RedHat 7.1



I have been holding my breath for 2.4 for so long and as I download and
install RedHat 7.1 with 2.4.2-2, I find that LVM is not by default
configured.
vgscan(1) reports no lvm.o module found.

So I get the sources and compile with RAID and LVM marked as modules.

#
# Multi-device support (RAID and LVM)
#
CONFIG_MD=y
CONFIG_BLK_DEV_MD=m
CONFIG_MD_LINEAR=m
CONFIG_MD_RAID0=m
CONFIG_MD_RAID1=m
CONFIG_MD_RAID5=m
# CONFIG_MD_MULTIPATH is not set
CONFIG_BLK_DEV_LVM=m

My make menuconfig; make dep; make clean; make bzImage are all fine.
Based on some docs, I was now supposed to do 'make modules'.
this part is breaking with some errors from 'drivers/md/linear.c"

Other documents say, one has to install the kernel and reboot and then
make modules.

Can someone help me with this.
Is RedHat planning to include LVM in their kernel. I don't like to have
to build kernel
for production. (just in case I have to bring one up fast as a
replacement).

Thanks
