# vgchange -ay
vgchange -- volume group "files_vg" successfully activated
I had a duplicate PV uuid for some reason.
The LVM2 vgcfgrestore didn't like the old LVM1 metadata format and
LVM2's vgconvert said files_vg doesn't exist. Catch 22. Combining the -u
switch in LVM2's pvcreate with a regular pvcreate and vgcfgrestore in
LVM1 finally solved that.
Very, very scary. Now to see if reiserfsck's --rebuild_tree works. :-)
