Hi,

unfortunately not. And the problem is much worse,
it breaks lvm resize operation completely.

I cherry-picked you patch to my tree, it fails, reverting helps.

Following test is over linux-next with your last patch applied:

Test case (lvresize of volume over 3 disks sdb,c,d):

# pvcreate /dev/sd[bcd]
  Physical volume "/dev/sdb" successfully created
  Physical volume "/dev/sdc" successfully created
  Physical volume "/dev/sdd" successfully created

# vgcreate vg_test /dev/sd[bcd]
  Volume group "vg_test" successfully created

# lvcreate -l100%FREE -n lv vg_test
  Logical volume "lv" created

# dmsetup table
vg_test-lv: 0 409600 linear 8:16 2048
vg_test-lv: 409600 409600 linear 8:32 2048
vg_test-lv: 819200 409600 linear 8:48 2048

so we have active LV mapped to 3 devices now.

Now online resize it. I means that it will create inactive table,
then switch active (so the magic with claiming disks applies):

# lvresize -L-10M vg_test/lv
  Rounding up size to full physical extent 8.00 MiB
  WARNING: Reducing active logical volume to 592.00 MiB
  THIS MAY DESTROY YOUR DATA (filesystem etc.)
Do you really want to reduce lv? [y/n]: y
  Reducing logical volume lv to 592.00 MiB
  device-mapper: reload ioctl failed: Invalid argument
  Failed to suspend lv

and in syslog:
