Then we must still be doing something strange with a journal buffer that
is on a transaction list somewhere.  It would be interesting to know if
this is truly the case, maybe by printk'ing all of the buffers "invalidated"
(nit verboesly, though, or it will overflow the printk buffers.

I know what the culprit is - PV_FLUSH, which LVM user tools call when they
are reading the LVM config from disk.  The lvscan is probably not triggering
it because it is reading from lvmdisktab (cache file).
