I generally agree, although I have some customers who want to manage
their own filesystems with LVM, so for them I give them one block
device with / on and another with nothing on for them to use as an
LVM PV as they please. So that ends up as LVM on LVM on RAID. I'm
sure there's a performance hit but haven't benchmarked exactly how
It also has the advantage that when they want more disk space I can
attach another block device and they can add this to their VG
without having to reboot their domU.
