Suppose I would NOT have an LVM partition.
(change its type with fdisk for example).
Please try to explain exactly what you are trying to do.

LVM is much more than a partition type, actually changing the partition
type with fdisk will not affect lvm at all.

Will the calls to "lvm vgscan" and
 "lvm vgchange" and "mkdmnod" and insmoding the dm* modules will not
cause panic ?

lvm commands won't cause panics, only being unable to mount your root
file system will.

if you want to get completely rid of lvm you will need to backup and
reinstall your system without lvm.
