The current mirror implementation only supports short-term mirrors, of
the sort needed by pvmove.

The mirror is destroyed if the device-mapper mirror target is
deactivated in any way - including through power loss, or by shutting
down device-mapper.

Next time the mirror is activated, it again copies the data from the
first device to the others.

A persistent mirror implementation is under development.
