The lvm2 init script works, that wasn't my point.
However, it might happen that it does not get executed after
installation or at start time, for whatever reason.

So, to make sure, I want to call it before starting system-config-lvm.

The lvm2 init script then executes

        modprobe dm-mod 2> /dev/null || :
        /sbin/vgscan --ignorelockingfailure --mknodes || :
        /sbin/vgchange -aly --ignorelockingfailure || return 2

which is fine, but a little overhead when s-c-l is started several times
in a row.
Therefore I'd like to have a status-function to check if lvm2 has
already been (successfully) run before.
