I've tried LVM+NBD some time ago (kernel 2.4.7 if my memory serves me well)
but it blocked unexpectedly if I rebuilt indexes in a few megs cobol file...
I switched to rsync as the requirements of the project allowed me to (and
also avoided the fsck on server switch). I haven't tried again since then...
