dir = "/dev" is set in lvm.conf file.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
No directory is create in /dev/ directory when I execute
vgcreate vgTest /dev/sdh
Directory should be created in /dev/ like /dev/vgTest

Unlike LVM1, in LVM2 the directory doesn't get created until you actually have
an active logical volume within the volume group. It's the code that
activates/deactivates logical volumes that creates/removes the directory.
