Sorry, I must have missed some parts of the patch for the user-space
tools.  Even so, I don't think the patch will help.

One other person had a similar problem.  It was because they were
using PIO mode instead of DMA mode on their (IDE) drive.  However,
I see you are using a SCSI disk, so I don't know what to suggest...

What SCSI controller are you using?

I have never seen more than a few percent difference between LVM and
non-LVM performance.
