Wouldn't it be possible to upload a new version to unstable, then after 
that upload 2.02.95-4.1 to t-p-u with just this patch?

It's not that this is just a fix for the installer.

It's that if someone is using lvm2 on an Intel Matrix Raid array via 
mdadm, which is a working and supported configuration on wheezy, and for 
some reason one of the disks is kicked out of the array, LVM2 /will/ 
detect lvm vg's and lv's on that disk/pv - creating chaos and very 
possibly data loss.
