OK, I've compiled and installed 2.2.14+0.8i+devfs 99.10, but still
pvcreate returns an error in pv_get_size when trying to init a
Mylex /dev/rd/.../partX device:

pvcreate  /dev/rd/disc0/part3
pvcreate -- ERROR -241 getting size of physical volume "/dev/rd/disc0/part3"

ls -l /dev/rd/disc0/part3
brw-------   1 root     root      48,   3 Jan  1  1970 /dev/rd/disc0/part3

Any solution to this problem? Where can i teach pv_get_size about
Mylex /dev/rd? Also does it matter that I'm using devfs and hence
have long nested /dev/ path names?
