slightly moving the chunks around in your mail,

hm...

well, comparing this:

for a start,
we see that the device nodes for -optlv and -temp are correct,
and the datavg seems correct.

but 253,1 apears two times in the listing, and 253,5 is missing...

recreate those nodes with
# dmsetup mknodes

or by hand with:
# cd /dev/mapper
# rm systemvg-{varlv,rootlv,tmplv,usrlv}
# mknod systemvg-tmplv   b 253 1
# mknod systemvg-usrlv   b 253 2
# mknod systemvg-varlv   b 253 3
# mknod systemvg-rootlv  b 253 5

now, how this could happen is an other question.

note that maybe the mapping of names to minors is still wrong.
but at least all of the devices should be there again;
(253,5) was missing completely before.

hope that gets you one step further.
