HP-UX puts info about the boot vg on disk, actually it writes there info
about the posistion of boot, root, swap and dump LVs. These LV are required
to be contiguous, so the info is simple enough.

uhm, if we want to kill partition tables, we have to cope with the limit
that you cannot put a PV in two different VGs, so this might not work for some
people.

would it be simplier if we assume it is the same PV from which we are booting?
