i am also using 2.4.17-19mdk + LVM
the issue is not with the kernel portion but with the tools portion
if you start using lvm with devfs you are stuck with it and vice-versa.
i proposed a workaround about 13 months ago, but never actually got
to code it. :(

which version of the tools are u using?
if it is current can you provide a debug output?
if you want to build an rpm for recent tools fetch spec and
patch from http://www.comedia.it/bluca/lvm and adapt it
to 1.0.3 (will upgrade the site soon)
the mkinitrd stuff does not work with 2.4.17-19mdk and xfs
