In theory they should be pretty similar :-)

But people reported differences which are probably caused by their particular
hardware setup.

In order to answer the question for your particular configuration, you should
test both ;-)

It doesn't make a difference if you go for the module or the build in driver,
you need to have an initrd today anyway to activate your VGs at boot time.

We are working on boot time recognition of VGs in the driver which will vanish
the initrd. That will be in a post 1.0 version of the Linux LVM.
