Alasdair,

thanks for the comments.

How about this?
  add_seg_to_segs_using_this_lv(lv, seg)
  remove_seg_from_segs_using_this_lv(lv, seg)

Or this?
  add_parent_seg(lv, seg)
  remove_parent_seg(lv, seg)

Returning NULL is valid if the list is empty.
But it should print error if the list has more than 1 items.

Some validation were included in the tests using find_mirror_seg().
I'll add generic ones.
