[linux-lvm] LVM skips /dev/hde3 because sysfs tells it not to use it

I had to disable sysfs_scan before pvcreate accepted to use /dev/hde3 on
a little MIPS box.

How does LVM decide whether sysfs tells it to use a block device or not?
And why would /dev/hde (an internal IDE drive) be presented by sysfs as
"not to be used by LVM"?
