Use pvmove.  You should provide kernel and lvm versions to see
if any experts here know of bugs or caveats.

Moving one LV at a time should keep the PEs contiguous.
I think that is what you are talking about.  XFS should work
with non-contiguous PEs, but will lose performance since
it is optimized for contiguous extents.

pvmove one LV at a time.
