It's OK Mikkel, I gotcha anyways.  I have checked rc.sysinit and it does
a 
'if [ -x /sbin/lvm ]; then
	action $"Setting up Logical Volume Management:" /sbin/lvm vgchange -a y
--ignorelockingfailure
fi

I have no use for lvm.  I have thought of either commenting out the
above statement, or, 'yum remove lvm2' which has a mkinitrd dependency.

Which or whatelse would be the least dangerous?  Where did the /sbin/lvm
come from?  I have been careful to NOT install LVM with each new fedora
installation.  If it is being added by the latest kernel upgrade, would
not this addition of LVM to the rc.sysinit script be a bug?
