My kernel and user tools are in sync (lvm_0.8) and my initial problem
here is that I get the IOP message -- and I get this message out of the
blue. No software changes, no kernel changes, nothing else except adding
another disk drive, the configuration had been running stable since
ages. I do not see anything here except the vgscan error, and the output
of "vgscan -d" is here:

bash-2.04# vgscan -d                                                   
<1> lvm_get_iop_version -- CALLED
<22> lvm_check_special -- CALLED
<22> lvm_check_special -- LEAVING
<1> lvm_get_iop_version -- AFTER ioctl ret: 0 
<1> lvm_get_iop_version -- LEAVING with ret: 5   
vgscan -- invalid i/o protocol version 5
