Yes, you need to apply the release dependent LVM kernel patch.

It depends. In 2.4 you can most likely just apply a LVM delta patch which
will be generated during the LVM installation. This is documented in INSTALL
and PATCHES/README contained in the LVM distro.

As mentioned: with 2.4. applying the LVM 0.9.1-BetaN patch will (most
              likely) work.
              With 2.2 it depends on the patches you added and how they
              interfere with the LVM patch.
