In addition to that, we could also revive the 'dmevent_tool'
that is a part of the dmraid at the moment and include this one in
lvm2 upstream (probably as a part of dmsetup or dmeventd or a separate
tool even). Existing tool from dmraid upstream is supposed to show dm
devices in general and their status with respect to dmeventd monitoring.
Though the tool itself needs a bit of a cleanup before porting.

There's also a bugzilla report open for this functionality:
