Maybe I'm wrong, but AFAIR Linus changed max and min macros on 2.4.9, so
they are not backwards compatible. As lvm_1.0.1-rc1 was intended for
kernel 2.4.9, I suppose it used those new max/min macros, so LVM 1.0.1-rc1
doesn't work with kernels < 2.4.9.

Check last week's linux kernel mailing list archives to check what people
think about this sudden change :)
