[linux-lvm] Re: Boot Mgr support for '/boot' on LVM2 volumes ?

user responsability to ensure this.

What about adding a "boot" flag to LVs? It set, it could have the following effect:

. Tools will ensure that the LV remains linear and contiguus and at the beginning of a PV.
. (Later) the LV is mirrored into every PV marked "bootable".

With these features, an OS could be booted from any disk. With mirroring (RAID-on-LVM) you could boot a system even if your primary disk fails.
