If the warnings are not being emitted to STDERR then that needs to be fixed right off the bat.

'lvs -q blah' should squash any warnings.
'lvcreate' frankly shouldn't output anything unless invoked with '-v' anyway. So therefore '-q' should also squash warnings.

I suspect a wholesale cleanup of the way LVM does logging will suffice to fix the gratuitous and unnecessary output.
