Thanks Jim!
That reminds me we've already seen something similar and there's still
workaround with drop_caches in ovirt-config-boot installer:
            # flush to sync DM and blockdev, workaround from rhbz#623846#c14
            echo 3 > /proc/sys/vm/drop_caches

But 623846 was supposed to be fixed in RHEL 6.0 ?
