unable to stop lvm from checking if there are logical volumes

Description of problem:
unable to stop lvm from checking if there is a logical volumes. I do not have
logical volumes on my hard drive. but yet there is a lvm check before udev on
every boot up. to me as well as others, this is a waste of time for it to tell
me what i already know " no logical volumes found"
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
every boot up
Steps to Reproduce:
lvm checks for Logical volumes
if not volumes are created in the beginning, ther eis no need to check for them
is it possible to just remove the rpm for lvm2 ? or will my system crash and
burn while it runs away.
It is mandatory to run lvm in initscripts in order to make sure that any volume
groups are discovered or we'ld be in trouble if essential filesystems live on
logical volumes. OTOH we could have an option to intentionally disable that
behaviour there in case the user really wants to.
Changing component to initscripts for clarification.
Realistically, this won't change - we need to check as mentioned in comment #1.
