[linux-lvm] Re: Error on unmounting XFS LVM snapshot

I did see this this today which appears to be the same issue:

http://www.kerneltraffic.org/kernel-traffic/kt20031027_238.html#4

From Marcelo Tosatti[1]: "It seems its not safe to create snapshots of journalled fs'es without this patch[2]."

Looks like the patch will show up in mainline in the 2.4.24-pre series.

Is the above talking about the VFS_LOCK patch, or is there another patch that should be applied?

It appears to be the VFS lock patch, but I'm no kernel guru...
