>From the manpages I see the following attribute bits:
* lvs, lv_attr bit Volume Health: (p)artial
* vgs, vg_attr bit (p)artial: one or more physical volumes belonging
to the volume group are missing from the system
* pvs, pv_attr bit (m)issing
along with the lvs copy_percent (is this similar to sync_percent) that
you mentioned. That's about it.
Since there seems to be no real underlying MD device, I'm assuming that
ioctls are out of the question as well.
