It's almost like it's starting the lvscan before the scsi scan is done.
I get messages about finding the physical disks before the lvscan but
don't get the messages about setting up sda and sdb until after the
lvscan fails. Could be just a console buffering problem though. 

Or x86_64 since the last message is something along the lines of 

scsi_scan_0 used greatest stack depth: 4904 bytes left.
