It seems you can have just one instance of the "filter" directive, where
you must put every filter you want to apply for devices. For example,
this is what I have in my configuration file:
filter = [ "r|hdd|", "r|cdrom|", "r|md|", "a|.*|" ]

I accept every block device under /dev, but previously exclude /dev/hdd
(my CD-ROM device), /dev/cdrom al MD metadevices from the list. It works.

Greetings.

PS: the man page for lvm.conf doesn't explicitily says you can have just
one "filter" directive, neither the opposite, although the sample
"lvm.conf" bundled with sources and packages seemd to give a hint about
the correct syntax. Would it be necessary to be more specific about that ?

Greetings.
