Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
When the /etc/lvm/cache/.cache file contained an entry that did not exist, the code processed an uninitialized structure which led to unreliable behavior. As a consequence, an error message referencing an undefined (major, minor) pair was returned. With this update, non-existent devices are handled correctly while processing the .cache file, and the aforementioned error message is no longer generated.
