Hmm, yes, I see what you mean. I guess to go that way I'd have to use
dm-cache directly or reconsider bcache to create a cached device to feed to
lvm as a PV.

It would probably work out for my use case if the PV itself wasn't cached
but the entire SSD cache device could be shared amongst all of the LV's. I
really don't want to split the cache into separate pieces per LV though,
that's just not going to scale.

Thanks.
