[linux-lvm] lvm partition on ramdisk

OK, I got it to work using your workaround. Thanks, Stuart.
How do I get LVM to put all the extents of the ramdisk BEFORE any of the
extents of the raid array? Even if I list the pvs, ramdisk first, in the
lvcreate command and/or start with the ramdisk in a vgcreate followed by
adding the raid array in a vgextend... it always ignores the ramdisk and
only assigns extents from the raid array. (I suppose it is putting the
ramdisk at the end, where it is useless for my purposes.)
