http://sources.redhat.com/cgi-bin/cvsweb.cgi/cluster/rgmanager/src/resources/lvm.sh?rev=1.1.2.7&content-type=text/x-cvsweb-markup&cvsroot=cluster&only_with_tag=RHEL46

Ok, so...

  <lvm name="myLV" vg_name="VolGroup01" lv_name="LogVol01"/>

This looks like an earlier version of the agent, which only supports one
LV per VG at a time.

I've asked the author to write a wiki page on it... My knowledge of it
is pretty cursory.
