[linux-lvm] snapshot of Reiserfs



I am using LVM 0.9.1 beta 4 on Linux 2.4.1 with Reiserfs.

Snapshots created when the filesystem is active cannot be mounted.
If I `umount' the filesystem before creating the snapshot, all is well.

I searched the mailing list archives and found a thread that dealt
with this problem on Linux 2.4.0 by applying a patch that flushed
the buffers before creating the snapshot:

  http://lists.sistina.com/pipermail/linux-lvm/2000-December/005512.html

This is clearly the problem I'm seeing.

Is there a comparable patch for 2.4.1?

Will the fix become "standard" in 2.4.2
so that patching is no longer necessary?
