This is nonsense. No Ubuntu release has systemd-based background scanning,
and all of them work fine. Also, it's still possible to not use backgrounding
by building lvm2 accordingly - so much for "not working".

In our current development series, we did merge the new change to enable
the background handling from Debian, and this caused our initramfs to fail.

Hence, this approach to revert to the previous behavior where needed (as it
was clearly working), and still use systemd if available.
