[linux-lvm] [patch] make device mapper compile on 2.5.4x



Hello,

device mapper does not compile on my 2.4.x tree, because of an argument
incompatibility in set_device_ro(). Please find attached a patch, which
makes this file compile. I am not sure if it is correct, since I do not
unterstand whats going on here, and have not tested it yet. Please somebody
have a look at it since it it broken for multiple releases, yet.

BTW: I also suggest to remove the www.sistina.com/lvm/ url from the
MAINTAINER file since it does not contain any useful information anymore.

Greetings
Bernd
