    I have used them together. The only thing that made problems at first
    after applying the LVM-patch was that I did not know that the special
    option "nouuid" is needed when mounting an XFS-Snapshot. But afterwards
    I had no problem so far.

    So why do you think that I should not use XFS on a logical volume?
