vgconvert and pvcreate have a facility to preserve the existing start
of the on-disk data extents, known as pe_start.
They indicate this by passing the existing value to the pvsetup function
which must preserve it.

This patch avoids one particular case where the value could get
changed incorrectly now that the alignment settings are configurable.
