I added echos such as "about to dm create" and then some "sleep 5" after
each of those commands.

There is zero output from mkdmnod on down until the "lvm vgscan" runs.

It produces this output:

device-mapper: 4.5.0-ioctl (2005-10-04) initialised: dm-devel redhat com
  Reading all physical volumes. This may take a while...
  No volume groups found
  Unable to find volume group "VolGroup00"

Booting into the rescue environment the dm raid is brought up and LVM
activated automatically and correctly.

Incidentally in the rescue environment I chrooted into my rootfilesytem
and brought up my network interface (/etc/init.d/network start), and ran
yum -y update.

There were about 40 packages downloaded, but every rpm install attempt
puked out out with errors from the preinstall scripts. Unsurprisingly
running rpm -Uvh /path/to/yum/cache/kernel*rpm resulted in the same
error. :(
