If you want the changes present in pre10 _and_ xfs _and_ LVM,
get the -aa kernel. Version pre10-aa2 has xfs included.
You can get the original at

Or a copy at:

I talk about the copy because in the same location you also have Andre's
ide-convert.10 IDE update patch:

You can try with those patches to see if this gives any help (note: IDE's patch
is not the original, it has been edited to merge with -aa, so I can have made
a mistake -- if it works someone could give it a thorough test, I have not
the hardware...)
