Yes, I have seen the thread, I have just not had the time to look into
it yet. Your last message said that the xfs snapshot creation was
failing, but with an ext3 stack trace.....

You also mention out of space problems in the snapshot.

Can you summarize where your kernel came from - I see you have lots of
stuff in there. Do you still need special lvm patches to turn on
snapshotting support - it has been a while.

Also, send me a quick rundown of the commands you need to use to setup
a volume for snapshotting - it will save me the research.
