I used an older LVM where it failed to convert a normal mirror. I used
"vgreduce" and it worked fine. So I used "vgreduce" to test the 'mlog'
conversion too. The actual command I used is constructed from the
following code piece:

snprintf(cmd_str, CMD_SIZE, "vgreduce --removemissing --force %s", vg)

I will test with the latest LVM and fix it. Thank you.
