I thought so too, but the fact that it only happens when I try to enable
LVM at bootup makes me think its not. I had a Debian mirror on this drive
prior to this, and it never gave me errors, and if I boot without LVM and
enable it after boot by hand, I don't get these errors. I'm suspecting its
some interaction with devfs, which is why I came here.

I compiled it into the kernel rather than modular. But I added these to
modules.conf anyway. No change.

Always try to keep the number of landings you make equal to the
