I hosed my vg yesterday with a failed pvmove.  Now on
boot, I see lots error messages in the system logs to
the tune of:

  device-mapper: mirror log: unrecognised sync
                 argument to mirror log: 2
   device-mapper: ioctl: error adding target to table
   device-mapper: table: device 254:0 too small for

one for each of my logical volumes.  mke2fs on one of
these volumes reports these errors:

  mke2fs 1.39 (29-May-2006)
  mke2fs: Device size reported to be zero.  Invalid   
          partition specified, or partition table
          wasn't reread after running fdisk, due to
          a modified partition being busy and in use. 
          You may need to reboot to re-read your
          partition table.

I am using debian unstable, with the following three

-lvm version 2.02.06-3
-lvm-common 1.5.20

Any clues to how I can repair my volume group?
