Yes - we do not currently use floats in lvm.conf. Another version could be, to
allow setting also in some absolute sizes - i.e.

snapshot_autoextend_free = 100MB
snapshot_autoextend_size = 200MB


Ok - I've tested the patch - and it seems to be working.

So ACK from my side.

What I see as a problem for the future is how to resolve settings per each
snapshot as current  'global' version - one setting for all snapshots is IMHO
quite limiting.
