The above output clearly shows that gardin-root and gardin-swap_1 have
empty tables. I remember there was a fix that cleaned up empty tables
like above but that won't help you. You need to figure out the reason
for 'device mapper lookup failure' messages.

The above messages are direct reason for not "really" creating
gardin-root or gardin-swap_1 logical volumes.  If you know the
underlying PV's that make up gardin-root LV, try reading from them using
'dd'. If you can read, then the most likely problem is that someone else
has opened them. It may be hard to find though. You need to go through
usual culprits by running, 'cat /proc/mounts', 'cat /proc/swaps' etc. Is
EVMS using them by any chance..., maybe mdraid...

Your 'dmsetup table' output shows why the mount failed. You have an LV
created with no mapping.

Thanks, Malahal.
