Alasdair did some kernel fixes for lvm2 striping on >2TB partitions

using stripes.

To use genuine partitions > 2TB, though, you need alternative
partitioning; the GPT disk label supports that, and "parted" can create
and partition such disk labels. (Note that most x86 BIOSes can't boot
off them, though, so don't do this on your boot disk!)
