thin: improve pool creation activation order

Pool creation involves clearing of metadata device
which triggers udev watch rule we cannot udev synchronize with
in current code.

This metadata devices needs to be activated localy,
so in cluster mode deactivation and reactivation
is always needed.

However for non-clustered mode we may reload table
via suspend/resume path which avoids collision with
udev watch rule which was occasionaly triggering
retry deactivation loop.

Code has been also split into 2 separate code paths
for thin pools and thin volumes which improved readability
of the code as well.

Deactivation has been moved out of extend_pool() and
decision is now in _lv_create_an_lv() which knows
the change mode.

 Version 2.02.99 - 
 ===================================
+  Improve activation order when creating thin pools in non-clustered VG.
   List thin-pool and thin modules for thin volumes.
   Correct thin creation error paths.
   Use local activation for clearing snapshot COW device.
