+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #998527 +++

This is a tracking bug for Change: OS Installer Support for LVM Thin Provisioning
For more details, see: http://fedoraproject.org//wiki/Changes/InstallerLVMThinProvisioningSupport

LVM has introduced thin provisioning technology, which provides greatly improved snapshot functionality in addition to thin provisioning capability. This change will make it possible to configure thin provisioning during OS installation.

The only missing piece is a way to select a usage profile in anaconda. You specify metadata size and chunk size via kickstart. The bug to add profiles to lvm2 for common thinp usage patterns is bug 958464.

I see 958464 in POST state but probably without profiles. Is it acceptable to consider this Change completed without it or not? FESCo asked me to finish review of Changes this week. Thanks.

LVM Thin Provisioning-specific options have been added into several places in the guide:
* File System Types - LVM Thin Provisioning is now listed in the list of partition types
* 15.4. Kickstart Options
** the autopart command includes the type=thinp
** the logvop command includes several new options related to thin provisioning like --thinpool=, --metadatasize=, etc.
