You need LVM-VFS patch on all kernels, you need ext3 or reiserfs or XFS
to get "real" VFS lock usage.  For non-journaled fs (like ext2) it just
syncs, and you mount the snapshot - it will complain that it is dirty,
but fsck will verify that there are no errors.

No, LVM was never part of 2.2, so you always need to patch.
