The problem is the first part of the if statement.  /proc/lvm doesn't exist
unless the lvm-mod module is loaded, and that doesn't happen by default.

On my RH7.2 box, I make initrd's with the "--with=lvm-mod" option so that
initrd forcably loads lvm-mod at bootup.  /proc/lvm then exists, and the
vgchange command is executed.  :)
