Hi Heinz, 

Hmm, there may be a little confusion here. The code I was refering to was
the code to pause and flush xfs to disk for snapshotting. This has no
dependencies on lvm, and is in the xfs tree now. The code for making 
snapshots writeable from Dale Stephenson at Connex is very lvm specific,
we could provide that as a patch to our tree until you are ready to take
it. Is this the code you are refering to? There is also the code you
already provide as a patch to make the write_super_lockfs and unlockfs
calls - is that remaining in patch form in 1.0?

Steve
