More information of my setup:

<snip from /etc/lvm/lvm.conf>
issue_discards = 1
<snip from /etc/lvm/lvm.conf>

I'm invoking these commands on a VM. I do not know, from where these
storage were mapped to my VM(were done my some storage admin). However
when i invoke sg_inq (from sg3_utils) to get some information, that fails
too :(

<snip>
# sg_inq /dev/vde
Both SCSI INQUIRY and fetching ATA information failed on /dev/vde
<snip>
