(Nearly) full tickless operation in 3.10
so is there any work going on towards making the barriers work on lvm volumes?
What about LVM?

Yes, but only single disk DM targets (e.g. linear), see: http://lkml.org/lkml/2008/2/15/125
Unfortunately, this patch hasn't been pushed upstream and the DM maintainer (agk) hasn't
really commented on when it might.

Sad, I now want to rip out my LVM setup and go back to straight-up ext3.
I've had some random unexplained file corruption at power-loss, even with safety-first
features of ext3 enabled. I wonder ext3 on LVM would explain it.

LVM without snapshots only uses the linear target.
