[linux-lvm] which files, which physical volumes?

Hi there,

Is there any way to find which files in a given logical volume occupy 
extents on a given physical volume?

I am trying to decommission a drive and pvmove still isn't working 
properly. Either that or;

1. pvmove -tv claims to fail when in fact without the -t it would 
actually work. Thie would seem like a joke in very bad taste (on the 
part of the developers.


2. pvmove -v which is supposed to give verbose progress output, in fact 
will sit there for a *very* long time (half an hour or more) with no 
progress output and push load up extremely high.

Or maybe pvmove is *still* broken, in which case I need to find the 
files which occupy that physical volume, move them to a different 
logical volume altogether and then forcibly remove that physical volume 
without regard to the files that are no longer on it... and hopefuly 
this won't cause corruption on the filesystem on that logical volume.
