The issue was that when I tried to create an XFS snapshot it would Oops and 
the snapshot creation would not have been completed.  The /dev/vg/lv entries 
would not be there; however, vgdisplay would show the snapshot as being in 
use but I could not remove the incomplete snapshot.

When I would reboot using a lvm-1.0.1 kernel (2.4.17-xfs+lvm1.0.1) - the 
machine would hang during startup; however, if I used a lvm-1.0.1rc4(ish) 
kernel (2.4.16-xfs+lvm1.0.1rc4) it would fix the problem on the fly during 
bootup and the snapshot would be put in full operation without problems.  
This was the only way I found to get the machine up & running again.

I don't have any info on which lines of code might have been the cause.  I'm 
still learning how to dig in and dbug.  ;-)
