We'd be happy to include such patches in the userspace tools and

Just ensure that all the differences are abstracted suitably so
that 'configure' can deal with them without breaking linux:-)

Note that we're part way through the process of merging the
device-mapper and lvm2 source trees: when this is complete
releases will consist of a single tarball with a single
'' (and an option just to build the former
device-mapper components).

Rather than sending one patch at the end, it's probably better to send
smaller patches as you go along, as and when logically-coherent sets of
changes are ready.  Also, try to avoid copying and pasting code into new
files where very little is changing - create internal library functions
or include files and share them instead, refactoring existing code
as required.
