Did people ever consider whether it was worth being able to start a PV
on a raw physical device with a small offset to reserve room for a boot
If you could create a PV on a bootdisk with a 2048 sector offset, you
would have a bootable device without partition tables and only LVM.
The same applies to LUKS. If you could put the LUKS header at 2048
sectors, you could boot a disk with nothing but a luks container, since
grub2 understands LUKS.
I guess such a thing would be extremely easy to achieve, it just
wouldn't be portable.
Since you may need to recompile both LUKS and Grub, and possibly even
The total number of changes would probably not be more than 10 lines.
Anyone ever fancied a LVM system without real partitions?
