All the major distributions have their own versions of the kernel.  We
do not develop or test against these.  So there are no guarantees that
LVM will work out of the box with anything other than Linus' kernels.
Some distributions, notably SuSE, work at making sure that LVM
integrates with their kernel.

I don't know, perhaps we need a volunteer to deal with RedHat issues.

Yes.

Please use the latest tools.

Personally I would just use a vanilla kernel.
