How these sizes look with dietlibc?

-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 308180 Jan 23 22:14 /sbin/lvm2-static*


Which is still very big, but reducing it will take significantly more
work.

Also some problems with lvm way of checking what command user wants based on argv[0] came out:
[root arm misiek]# /sbin/initrd-lvm
No such command. Try 'help'.
...
It would be much better if when argv[0] is not known internally for lvm then work as argv[0] = lvm.

unfortunately it seems done the other way around in lvm.c
i found it easier to add possible aliases for lvm in there
