So, according to udev/lvm, there is no VG metadata in the PV, which of course means we do not ever assemble the LVs and find the installation.
The root cause for this lies in lvm, see bug 620745. I'm testing a workaround patch now.
A workaround patch has been posted to a-d-l. I've verified that this patch fixes the finding of a default Intel Firmware RAID install in rescue mode with:
+ an updates.img with the patch.
The lvm team has a fix for this, marking this bug as a duplicate of the lvm bug 620745.
