This is a fairly old LVM code (2 years almost)...

It is not just the user tools that need to be updated.  You always need
to patch the kernel to have the same LVM version.  Get the latest 0.9.1
beta code, run configure, and then "make" in the PATCHES directory, to
build a kernel patch.

You could get this from tools/lib/lvm.h.
