[linux-lvm] [PATCH 2/2] fs snapshot plugin: add support for snapshotting thinly provisioned LVM volumes



Thinly provisioned LVM volumes offer more scalable snapshots than the
original LVM snapshots.  Thinly provisioned snapshots use a single
shared pool of storage (aka thin-pool) so there is no need to require
the user to have configured "lvcreate_size_args" in the
yum-fs-snapshot.conf for them.

When inspecting an LVM volume we now record the LVM "segtype" in the
volume dict.  is_thin_volume() was introduced to simplify checking
whether an LVM volume is thinly provisioned or not.
