Unfortunately this will add extraneous messages / errors to some vgsplit
operations as a check for existence is not always a command error.  Plus
vg_lock_newname only returns codes in the other paths and it would be
good to stay consistent (log_error() in all error paths or none of them
and let caller decide).
