I see.  I was too focused on the commit; didn't look at the rest of
_percent_run(), etc.

Well the reality is we really shouldn't be passing a snapshot-origin
into _percent_run() to begin with.  I made it so that we filter it out
very late, in _percent_run, in cases where snapshot-merge completion
polling gets started even though the snapshot was not allowed to start
merging (as is possible if a snapshot or snapshot-origin is still open
when a 'lvchange --refresh origin' occurs).

So one thing we could do is move the lv_is_merging_origin() much earlier
and revert to passing a NULL lv to _percent().

Another option is to audit that segment count check in _percent_run()
and possibly only make that check for cases where it really matters.
