Description of problem:
Device Mapper was built in the -ac based Red Hat kernels, but has been removed
now that the Red Hat kernels are based off Marcelo with selected -ac bits. 
Please include the current DM backport, so that it can get some real-world
testing before 2.6 arrives.  (I'm currently using DM on RH8 for the fast

I've done some work on re-packaging the relevant bits so that LVM1 and LVM2 can
coexist, but it is still a bit untidy; see the URL for an explanation, and link
to my SRPMs.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Didn't try

Steps to Reproduce:
modprobe dm-mod
