[Libguestfs] [PATCH 2/5] daemon: lvm-filter: start lvmetad better



Currently lvmetad is started in init, and thus using the system
(= appliance) configuration of lvm.  Later on, in the daemon, a local
copy of the lvm configuration is setup, and set it for use using the
LVM_SYSTEM_DIR environment variable: this means only the programmes
executed by the daemon will use the local lvm configuration, and not
lvmetad.

Thus manually start lvmetad from the daemon, right after having setup
the local lvm configuration, and still without failing if it cannot be
executed.

Additionally, since lvmetad now respects the right configuration, make
sure to update its cache when rescanning the VGs by passing --cache to
vgscan.
