Well, when you generate a new LVM patch it will just do a "diff" between
the lvm.c file in the LVM/kernel directory and the linux/md/lvm.c file.
If the VFS-lock patch is applied to the kernel sources and not the
LVM/kernel sources, it will be removed by the diff, meaning you will
need to apply the VFS-lock patch to the kernel again.

If you find you are doing a lot of patching, you could apply the VFS-lock
patch to the LVM/kernel/lvm.c file, and then subsequent patches that you
create will not have this part removed.
