[lvm-devel] [PATCH] update heuristic used for default data alignment



1) --dataalignment or lvm.conf's "devices/data_alignment" is always used
   - neither MD nor IO Topology are even consulted
2) take MAX() of determined alignment value and existing pv->pe_align
3) allow lvm.conf's "device/default_data_alignment" to change the
   default alignment that LVM2 uses: 0==64k, 1==1MB, 2==2MB, etc.

set_pe_align() still looks to use the determined default (based on
lvm.conf's default_data_alignment) if the default is a multiple of the
MD or topology provided values.
