I checked this code, but the value of failed_mirrors is '0' when
no mirror leg has error. So this code path was not executed in
my test. This is the reason why log was not removed with
mirror_log_fault_policy = "remove".

mirror_log_fault_policy = "allocate," on the other hand, the log
was removed in the following path.

        while (replace_mirrors || replace_log) {
                ...
                if (_lvconvert_mirrors_aux(cmd, lv, lp, NULL,
                                           lp->mirrors, log_count))
                        break;

We need to change the condition so that lv_remove_mirrors() is
executed.
