You're not missing anything.  The correct thing to do (as pointed out
by Andrea Arc.) is to hook b_end_io such that we can keep track of all
'in flight' io's, and only start moving once these have completed.
This is implemented in the new device-mapper driver that we are
switching to shortly.  I consider 'live' pvmove broken in the current
LVM.
