Even if you fix the snapshot_sem you still have the down on the _pe_lock
in lvm_map. The part covered by the PE lock is only a few tenths of cycles
shorter than the part covered by the snapshot semaphore; so it is unlikely
that you see much difference unless you change both to rwsems.
Wouldn't a single semaphore be enough BTW to cover both?
