You need to run the dmesg output through ksymoops for this to be useful.
The journal-1777 message is definitely a reiserfs error, but there is no
way to tell where the oops happened.  Also running "lvcreate -v -d" may
be useful, if overly verbose.

I wouldn't think that how you create an LV would affect reiserfs, but who
knows?  There could be something in how lvextend updates the in-kernel
information, the beta5 snapshot changes, or it may also be something in
the reiserfs snapshot code.
