I tried a few and none seemed to work, but I restored one from before I made
snapshots and recovered from this.
I now have my system back (/usr, /var)

As  for  /home,  as soon  as  I  tried  to  access it  (e2fsck,  tune2fs  -O
^has_journal, or whatever), the process hung in "wait_o" according to ps.

I tried to  restore the VG to  its state before I added  snapshots, but that
only made it go away :-(
