In case you want to go with LVM 1.0.1 (which is the actual release you
can get from www.sistina.com) and want to have the recent driver fixes
in the kernel as well, you still need to patch it following the instructions
in INSTALL and PATCHES/README.
1.0.1 for eg. addresses devfs and unresolved symbol issues.
