Re: [linux-lvm] Why does every lvm command insist on touching every pv?

I understand your requests and I have the same opinion as yours.
My suggestion of 'filter' option just reduces the number of
accesses to disks which are not related to PVs. Hopefully I would
like to find a good solution and fix for this issue.

I think that this kind of options are very helpful to give
increased priority to this issue among LVM community.

Thanks,
Taka
