I wish I'd known you were also working on toollib.c; we could have
coordinated the sequence of changes a little better.  Perhaps we could
all push our in-progress work to an lvm2.git branch like I've done in

OK, it'll be nice to get rid of the nomda case.  I'll study your changes
further and try to rework my new process_each_pv to avoid using pv_read.
Perhaps you'll then be able to drop the toollib commit in your tree.
