I would recommend lvm-1.0.3 for the moment.  There have been heaps of fixes 
gone into it since lvm-1.0.1rc4.  I believe that the 2.4.19 kernel when it is 
released will contain lvm-1.0.3.

The biggest problem with LVM and XFS was with snapshots and co-existing with 
other filesystems.  If you are only running XFS and are not using snapshots 
then you could be lucky.

>From personal experience I have a very stable kernel running XFS CVS & 
lvm-1.1rc1 as it is one of the first XFS & LVM combinations that have passed 
all my tests.  But as lvm-1.1rc1 is very beta I would strongly not recommend 
this to anyone for production machines.
