If you want people to understand your questions, stop talk about "one LVM"
as if it was a storage device (virtual or real).  LVM is a software
package, and the objects you manipulate using it include

LV	Logical Volume
PV	Physical Volume
VG	Volume Group

In addition, kpartx creates virtual block devices.
