[linux-lvm] lvm on top of mdraid switches from /dev/md126p2 to /dev/sdb2

I have an imsm raid-1 device /dev/md126 assembled of /dev/sda and /dev/sdb.
I have a lvm group on top of /dev/md126p2 with some logical volumes. All
this work fine with Fedora 21.

I'm trying to fresh install Fedora 22 in some of lvm logical volume. I boot
with Fedora USB live media and run "Install to hard disk". But anaconda
does not see any existing lvm volumes so I can not choose them as a

I've created a bug https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1178181 on
this issue.

After some discovering I found that the reason of this issue is that
anaconda brakes lvm:

before launching anaconda pvdisplay reports there are two physical volumes
/dev/md126p2 and /dev/sdc2 (/dev/sdc is an SSD that does not belong any
raid and contains a separate lvm volume group)

after launching anaconda pvdisplay reports another two physical volumes
/dev/sdb2 and /dev/sdc2, that is wrong, because /dev/sdb is a part of
/dev/md126 raid.

journalctl shows:

Seems lvm stopped using '/dev/md126p2'. Futhure lvm rescans force it to use
/dev/sdb2 instead.

The attached storage.log contains a trace of udev events of this. All other
logs are available
in https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1178181

What is wrong? How to force lvm to use /dev/md126p2 instead of /dev/sdb2
after starting anaconda?
