[linux-lvm] Problems binding raw devices to PV's



We are having problems when running vgchange to activate volume groups
that have raw devices bound to it's PV's. We are currently using
LVM 1.0.1-rc4 running on Linux kernel 2.4.14. 

Andrew

Reproducing problem:
--------------------
1. Establish raw device <--> scsi disk device bindings using raw
   utility
2. Create 1 vg with 2 pv's (problem not seen with only 1 pv)
3. Deactivate vg with vgchange
4. When you re-activate the vg with vgchange, something is corrupted
   such that the raw mappings appear to have been changed.
5. The next attempt to change back the raw binding causes segfault in
   the raw utility, accompanied by a kernel stack trace on the
   console/syslog
6. The next attempt to change back the raw binding causes the system
   to completely lock up/wedge.
