Well this seems consistant with what I'm seeing:
While source volume mounted:
 + lvm-1.0.1 upgrade
 + VFS-lock
 (In that order)
* Can create ext3 snapshot?			| yes
* Can mount a ext3 snapshot?			| yes
* Can create resierfs snapshot?			| yes
* Can mount a resierfs snapshot?		| yes
* Can create xfs snapshot?			| Oops
 btp 1234 (lvcreate)
Running processes (lvcreate)
* Can mount a xfs snapshot?			| Cannot test
When source & snapshot mounted:
* Cause oops when snapshot overflows?	|
 - ext3						| OK - Stable
 - resierfs					| OK - Stable
 - xfs						| Cannot test

What does your backtrace look like?  Its the ext3_dirt_inode in my backtrace 
thats got me.  I have compiled a kernel without ext3 so will also give it a 
run later.

I now have a serial cable and once I work out how to use kdb with it I'll be 
able to capture the full kdb output.. I was wanting to be in this position 
now; but ran into an issue with the Linux kernel which killed a lot of time.. 

OT: There is an option in the linux kernel config that allows extra debugging 
info to be compled into the kernel.  Don't use it as it stops all modules 
from being loaded.  It took me a couple of hours to realise what was 
happening :-(
