2.4.20-pre4 + LVM = hosed /proc/partitions

Try compiling CONFIG_BLK_DEV_LVM into 2.4.20-pre4 and then run
'cat /proc/partitions' for some amusement. I really like the way
it prints /dev/lvmX, where X is first a-z, and then proceeds to
apparently increment X another 229 times...

    $ cat /proc/partitions | wc -l

And /proc/partitions now contains only LVM entries...
