Hi Guys,

I uses lvm2-2.02.180, I got an error message when running lvs/lvdisplay against cached LVs.
linux-v5ay:~ # lvs
  Unknown feature in status: 8 1324/8192 128 341/654272 129 151 225 1644 0 341 0 3 metadata2 writethrough no_discard_passdown 2 migration_threshold 2048 smq 0 rw -

  swap system -wi-ao----  2.00g

The bug can be reproduced stably with the below steps.
Have a (virtual) machine with 2 disk drives
Install os with LVM as root volume
Then, add the second disk after os is installed.
# pvcreate /dev/sdb
# vgextend system /dev/sdb
# lvcreate --type cache-pool -l 100%FREE -n lvc_root system /dev/sdb
# lvconvert --type cache --cachepool system/lvc_root system/root
then run `lvs` or `lvdisplay` command to trigger the issue
