It doesn't matter what version the kernel code is, as long as the tools
are newer than beta2 you are OK.  If the on-disk UUIDs are bad, then
all you need to do is some sort of simple change (add a 1 PE LV and
remove it), and the on-disk VGDA should be re-written with the correct

You can check the on-disk UUIDs with "pvdata -U" for each PV.  They
should all match.
