Been there - unfortunately ;-(
I could not even boot the poxy system as all the LUNs were XFS on LVM2.
Rescue mode told me that none of my LUNS had Linux partitions ;-0
Anyway, I have just tested snapshotting with ext3 and that works
perfectly. Must be a combo of XFS and that kernel and LVM tools. It didn't
even bork when I rebooted ;-)
