Thank you for committing it.

The latest lvm command works as you mentioned only when a logical volume
is on valid physical volumes, but lvchange or vgchange fails if a logical volume
contains invalid devices. In that case, we still  need --partial option.

For example, LV is on PV1 and PV2 for linear, stripe or mirror, and PV2 is
missing. With --partial option, we can activate LV and read/write it. This is
very important especially for mirror volume.

It is ideal that a logical volume can be activated without --partial option.
And in that case,  we don't need --partial option.
