i think i misunderstand something, i'm trying to mount my old lvm1 volumes,
if xfs crated them with 512byte chunks cause of this hard coded major number,
why should i have troubles when i try to mount them using lvm2

PS.
on more question,
in case i find a way to make a back-up to convert 
to other chunk size for the log( not very likely:( )
which chunk size should i use ?
will it impact performance ?
