[lvm-devel] vgchange.c gets dmeventd monitoring activation wrong



Updating to Fedora 12 kernel 2.6.32.9-67.fc12.x86_64 I was left
with no root device.

Reason was, that we don't get dmeventd device monitoring activation
(deactivation in this case rather) right, hence causing dlopen on
libdevemapper-event DSO(s) via the dmeventd call chain.

The DSOs are intentionally not part of the initramfs for obvious
reasons, which should be respected by the fact, that we call "vgchange
--monitor n" from dracut's lvm_scan script.

This patch is a proposal to fix the dmeventd activation handling via the

"--ignoremonitoring" and the "--monitor {y|n}"

options and is not tested yet.

It give precedence to the "--ignoremonitoring" option over the other
one, which makes more sense IMO and needs a vgchange(8) manual change to
reflect this.
Of course we should better raise a command line error if both are given,
which is subject to future discussion.
