udev: create /dev/disk/by-id/lvm-pv-uuid-<PV_UUID> symlink for a PV

We already have /dev/disk/by-id/dm-uuid-... (which encompasses the
VG UUID and LV UUID in case of LVs since the mapping's UUID is
VG+LV UUID together) and /dev/disk/by-id/dm-name-... (which encompasses
the VG and LV name in case of LVs).

This patch addds /dev/disk/by-id/lvm-pv-uuid-<PV_UUID> that completes
this scheme and makes navigation a bit easier using PV UUIDs since
one can navigate using PV UUIDs only and there's no need to do extra
PV UUID <--> kernel name matching (the PV UUID is stable across reboots).
This may come in handy in various scripts.

Since we already have the PV UUID stored in udev database (as a result
of blkid call - returned in ID_FS_UUID blkid's variable), this operation
is very cheap indeed, just creating the extra one symlink.

 Version 2.02.106 - 
 ====================================
+  Create /dev/disk/by-id/lvm-pv-uuid-<PV_UUID> symlink for each PV via udev.
   lvcreate computes RAID4/5/6 stripes if not given from # of allocatable PVs.
   Fix merging of old snapshot into thin volume origin.
   Use --ignoreskippedcluster in lvm2-monitor initscript/systemd unit.
