[lvm-devel] [PATCH]: Mirror: warn when activating mirror and !ignore_lvm_mirrors

Not sure if I care for the static variable, but I don't want it printed
for every mirror on every command that activates...


Mirror: Print warning on activation if mirrors exists and !ignore_lvm_mirrors

Print a warning if mirrors are present and config file settings indicate
that they can be scanned for labels.  (A process that has the potential
to block indefinitely if it happens just after a failure.)
