[linux-lvm] extend the root vg to an md

When I extend my root vg ( the VG that has the root lv ) to an PV on the 
md0 device, the system boots into a panic complaining that the UUID of 
PV on the md device does not exist. But before I extend it, the system 
boots normally, showing the md0 and its pv is up.

Any advice is greatly appreciate.

Below is my disk configuration before running the vgextend g1volgroup00 

[root at g1 ~]# pvdisplay
