[lvm-devel] [PATCH 1/4] Change the pvcreate swap/md logic



pvcreate detects MD and swap signature.

The logic hidden there is not only documented but it is also
user unfriendly. Who invented this logic should run pvcreate
on its own critical MD device to see why;-)

This patch
 - create one function instead of duplication code
 - asks if user want to overwrite signature
 - allow aborting (!)
 (Please note that writing LVM signarute without wiping old
 is wrong, it confuses blkid, MD will not work anyway and
 swap and LUKS is broken too.)

Question is ignore if --yes is given or --force switch is used.
(See later patch also.)
