[linux-lvm] lvchange seg faults after switching cache policy mq->cleaner->mq

I (attempted to) change the cache policy on a LV to write the changes
out to the disk.

# lvchange --cachepolicy cleaner vg0/home

Verified the expected setting with:

# lvs -o +cache_policy,cache_settings vg0/home
  LV   VG   Attr       LSize Pool     Origin       Data%  Meta%  Move Log Cpy%Sync Convert Cache Policy Cache Settings
  home vg0  Cwi-aoC--- 2.61t [cache0] [home_corig] 100.00 13.25           0.00             cleaner

After doing some tasks (i.e. reflashing the firmware of my broken
Samsung 840 EVO), I wanted to re-enable the mq cache policy with:

# lvchange --cachepolicy mq vg0/home

However, now lvchange segmentation faults on me.  I started with lvm2 on
Arch Linux at version 2.02.116-1.  I just compiled the git head
(75aa3e951f2) and still have the seg fault.

Recompiled with debug flags and have this stack trace:

More readable @ https://gist.github.com/fb7a054e6c3f77332b85

I didn't have enough time to dig in deeper, but the v=0 in the
_clone_config_value() is where things appear to go off the rails.

Hoping this means more to someone who is more familiar with this code.
