Hm, I hoped I could get rid of the broken partitioning scheme of the
PC and C/H/S addressing used in the partition table.

Are there objections to change LVM so that the VGDA is placed at some
fixed offset (say 1 sector or 1 block (1K)) from the beginning of the
PV?  This is how many file systems also use block devices to avoid
conflicts with MBR, boot sectors and so on.

BTW, are the other partitioning schemes that I could use than the one
that the standard MBR and MSDOS use?  Can the linux kernel recognize
other partition tables which only use absolut, linear sector numbers?
