snapshot: %ORIGIN is relative to data size

Let's use the size of origin as the real base for percenta calculation,
and 'silenly' add needed metadata space for snapshot.

So now command   'lvcreate -s -l100%ORIGIN vg/lv' should always create a
snapshot to handle full device overwrite.

 ==================================
+  Automatically add snapshot metadata size for -l %ORIGIN calculation.
   When converting RAID origin to cache LV, properly rename sub-LVs.
   Use RemoveOnStop for lvm2-lvmetad.socket systemd unit.
   Add thin-generic configuration profile for generic thin settings.
