In my lvm.conf, I have set my filter 

filter = [ "a|hda*|", "a|hdb*|", "a|hdc*|" ]
filter = [ "r|cdrom|", "r|hdd*|" ]

but, when I do 

time lvm vgscan
  Reading all physical volumes.  This may take a while...
real    3m41.199s
user    0m0.889s
sys     0m1.088s

and ps -ef show me many modprobe -q -- block_major*

So, in my rc.sysinit,  I do 
"action $"Setting up Logical Volume Management:" /sbin/lvm vgscan
--mknodes && /sbin/lvm vgchange -a y"

So, 3m41.19 for a vgscan is too long for me.  Anybody could help me to
reduce this time??
