Re: [linux-lvm] eta for a 2.4.10 compatible release?

This is by no means blessed by the official LVM folks, but what I've
been doing for quite a while is the following (assuming the latest
lvm and kernel tarballs are unpacked in the current directory):

cp LVM/1.0.1-rc4/kernel/*.c LVM/1.0.1-rc4/kernel/lvm-internal.h \
cp LVM/1.0.1-rc4/kernel/lvm.h linux/include/linux/
cat linux/drivers/md/Makefile | \
	sed 's/^\(lvm-mod-objs.*\)$/\1 lvm-fs.o/' > m && \
	mv m linux/drivers/md/Makefile

Very simple procedure; replace all the lvm stuff in the kernel w/ the
new lvm files, and just add lvm-fs.o to the md Makefile:
-lvm-mod-objs	:= lvm.o lvm-snap.o
+lvm-mod-objs	:= lvm.o lvm-snap.o lvm-fs.o

No worries about rejected patches, and so on.
