how lvm snapshot works? I noticed that

[root@rhel5 proc]# lvconvert --merge /dev/VolGroup00/rootsnap
  Can't merge over open origin volume
  Can't initialize snapshot merge. Missing support in kernel?
  Unable to merge LV "rootsnap" into its origin.
[root@rhel5 proc]#
[root@rhel5 proc]#
[root@rhel5 proc]#
[root@rhel5 proc]# lvs

  LogVol01 VolGroup00 -wi-ao  1.97G

"To check if your kernel supports the snapshot  merge  feature,  look  for  ’snapshot-
merge’  in the output of dmsetup targets."

It doesn't look like it supports merge.
