[lvm-devel] [PATCH 0/10]: Add implicit pvcreate support in vgcreate / vgextend.

This patch set is a rebase and rewrite of the earlier implicit pvcreate
patchset.  These patches should address most, if not all, feedback to date,
and include updated tests.  Once these patches are in, a user should no
longer need pvcreate, except in rare recovery scenarios (usage of 
--uuid, --restorefile, and --physicalvolumesize are not supported with
vgcreate and vgextend).

Patches 1-7 are just refactoring of existing code and should not change
functionality.  Patch 8 changes the behavior of vgcreate and vgextend to
implicitly pvcreate if a device is not already initialized.  Patch 9
updates the man pages and patch 10 the nightly tests.

One issue that has yet to be addressed is PV vs VG metadatacopies.
A separate patch should address this soon after this patchset.

Applies cleanly and passes testsuite on the following commit:
