Dieter,

Yes, the on-disk and backup metadata is identical so we have the
device hint. But I don't think that it is really a good idea to show it,
because this would make up a bit pitfall and confusing in stress
situations.

But it would be usefull to add a list of lvs that are partially available
or degraded in case of mirrors, so you have a quick info what is
the actual state of your system.

Best,

Jens
