Even though the messages don't contain "warning", and probably should,
they are printed via DMWARN().

These warnings are a function of device-mapper now being
topology-aware.  This means that your LVs are likely misaligned relative
to the underlying hardware.  Given that you're using partitions I'd
wager they are the source of the misalignment.  But there could be a bug
lurking somewhere.

Please provide the output from the following commands:

pvs -o +pe_start

cat /sys/block/sda/sda6/alignment_offset
cat /sys/block/sda/queue/physical_block_size
cat /sys/block/sda/queue/logical_block_size

If you could also provide the same info for all other PVs that are in
the VG that would be appreciated.

Mike
