[linux-lvm] swap tagged as lvm2



Hi,
 
We have installed RHEL 4.7 on a single disk (actually two disk in hardware RAID).  Part of it use regular partions and others LVM2 logical volumes.  To my surprise, when running pvs or pvscan, the swap partition is shown has LVM2:
 
# pvscan
  PV /dev/sda5   VG vgsys            lvm2 [53,19 GB / 32,19 GB free]
  PV /dev/sda3                       lvm2 [65,21 GB]
  Total: 2 [118,39 GB] / in use : 1 [53,19 GB] / in no VG: 1 [65,21 GB]
 
But if I type fdisk -l /dev/sda, sda3 is a good old swap partition:
 
# fdisk -l /dev/sda
 
Disque /dev/sda: 72.7Go, 72746008576 octets
255 têtes, 63 secteurs/piste, 8844 cylindres
Unités = cylindres de 16065 * 512 = 8225280 octets
 
Périphérique Boot    Start     End      Blocks   Id    System
/dev/sda1   *         1      13      104391   83  Linux
/dev/sda2   *        14     332     2562367+  83  Linux
/dev/sda3   *       333    1899    12586927+  82  Linux swap
/dev/sda4   *      1900    8844    55785712+   5  Extended
/dev/sda5   *      1900    8844    55785681+  8e  Linux LVM
 
I do not think this is a big problem but I am curious of why and could it be a problem?
 
Thanks for your help,
Bernard
