This would break current behavior btw (I do not say current is the right
one, but it exists).
lvchange -ay|-an on a clustered LV activates it shared everywhere in
cluster. Internally this is done by sending message to all nodes
(wildcard). Each node obtain shared lock itself then.

I just slightly modified this to be able to send targeted messages.
Everything was already in code, I just made it work for non-wildcard
messages and added possibility to enable this in tools.
