The problem is that the patches mentioned in the fragments file
(LVM/PATCHES/fragments-*) for your kernel should only be applied once.
So either do as Luca says and go back to a clean kernel.  Or just
empty the fragments file (do not delete it, and do keep a back up in
case you go back to a clean kernel at some point).
