I was imagining that someone might have had a good way to get
information about what LVM and DM actually did wrong out of this
system.  Seems not.

If anybody wants to analyze this problem, the window of opportunity is closing.
If nobody pings me within 15 minutes, I'll nuke it and try EVMS :-).

Also, I'll be recommending LVM and DM to my family and friends.
Seems rock stable.  Not!!!  Haha...
