You could try to use 'dd' to backup the damaged pv to a new (equally-sized)
partition, using 'conv=noerror' option to skip faulty blocks.

Perhaps you could use strace or on of the debugging options of pvmove to
determine wher it locks. I suspect it locks trying to read the faulty block
over and over again.

good luck,
