Just an example.

md0 -> vg00 -> { lv00, lv01, lv02, lv03 }
md1 -> vg01 -> { lv04, lv05 }

Dracut options passed to the kernel cmdline:
rd.md.uuid=<UUID_of_md0> rd.lvm.lv=vg00/lv00 rd.lvm.lv=vg00/lv01

What happens in initramfs:
- md0 is assembled
- vg00/lv00 and vg00/lv01 are activated

What happens during system boot:
- md1 is assembled
- vg01/lv04 and vg01/lv05 are activated

vg00/lv02 and vg00/lv03 are not activated.
