Can you try the attached patch?
(in addition to the upstream lvm fix you mentioned below)

Recent distributions generate udev events *after* the use of
devices through "watch" rules.
As a result, lvremove/lvchange can race with it and fail to
remove/deactivate volume.

I haven't tested the patch but I could fix the similar
problem of lvremove by putting 'udevadm settle' before that.
So I think it's worth trying.

This lvm patch fixes only the case where lvremove itself generates udev events.
You'll still see the problem as the udev events will be generated when
a VM finishes using the volume, for example.
