Wouldn't it be better to simply disable compiling/using lvmetad on such systems ?
HEAD of 2.03 already dropped lvmetad anyway.
Do you need any sort of autoactivation in ramdisk ?
There is probably higher complexity.
pvscan was not moved into systemd service just for fun - there have been at
least 2 major mandatory points why 'pvscan' with autoactivation MUST NOT be
executed from udev rule directly (udev timeout)
So the proposed patch must be NAC-ked as it is - as it probably causing way
more troubles then it solves.
