Log message:
	Fix for bug 732142: Unsafe table load during mirror image split
	
	There was a bad sequence:
	*) Make changes to LV layout to split images (e.g. 4-way -> 2-way/2-way)
	1) vg_write, suspend_lv(original_mirror), vg_commit
	2) activate_lv(newly_split_lv)
	3) resume_lv(original_mirror)
	
	Step #2 is not allowed.  However, without it, the resume of the original
	mirror will also resume its former sub-LVs - making it impossible to
	activate the newly split LV due to the changes in layering, pointers, and
	names that had already been made.  Additionally, the resume or the original
	brings the sub-lv's online with names that differ from the metadata on disk -
	also a no-no.  Thus, the split must be done in stages such that the active LVs
	always reflect what is in the committed LVM metadata.
	
	First, alter the original mirror by releasing the images.  The images are made
	visible and independent as an intermediate stage.  (This way, we can have
	consistency between LVM metadata and active LVs.)  The second stage collects
	the recently split LVs, deactivates them, forms them into a mirror if necessary,
	and then activates them.  It is a bit of a circuitous method, but it is the only
	way to split a mirror from a mirror and obey these general rules:
	1) Never [de]activate sub-lvs when the top-level LV is suspended
	2) Avoid having active LVs that differ from the description in the LVM metadata

 Version 2.02.89 - 
 ==================================
+  Fix unsafe table load when splitting off smaller mirror from a larger one.
   Use size_t return type for text_vg_export_raw() and export_vg_to_buffer().
   Add configure --enable-lvmetad for building the (experimental) LVMetaD.
   Fix resource leak when strdup fails in _get_device_status() (2.02.85).
