[linux-lvm] Problem with Snapshot or something else ?

> >>Chris Mason posted a new VFA lock patch for 2.4.8+
> >>heer:

I have linux kernel 2.4.8-ac8 and applied the VFS lock
patch. I am having a problem when having snapshots.

1. I create a VG over three disk partitions
sda2,sdb2,sdc2 ( total size being around 90G)
2. I then create a LV of size 10G. 
3. I create a reiser file system over this LV and
mount it.
4. I copy around 1.2G of data to this LV.
5. I take a snapshot of this LV.
6. I leave the snapshot and try copying another 1.2G
of data to the LVM. I am doing the I/O using cp
command. The cp command gives segmentation fault and I
get a kernel message...

When I do not have any snapshot, I am able to copy any
amount of data to the LV. But I am consistently
getting this error when I have sometimes one, or more
than snapshot in the system. 

Am I doing something wrong ??
I am not sure whether this is a problem with snapshot
or some other problem. But as I see it only when I
have snapshots in the system, I am reporting it here.

I would also like to know how do I get the latest VFS
lock patch ? I mean with normal source code we get
linux-2.4.4-VFS-lock.patch. I found that it was
different from the one mentioned above(start of this
mail), which is supposed to be for 2.4.8-ac8. But when
I tried this(2.4.8-ac8) with kernel 2.4.8-ac9 it
failed. So which patch do I use for generic purpose ?
