Description of problem:
I have a LVM Volume Groups setup and the precompiled kernel doesn't have LVM
support compiled in and doesn't load it via initrd. To workaround this I would
need to modify initrd or recompile the kernel.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Setup LVM Volume Groups
2. Reboot machine

Actual Results:  rc.sysinit doesn't detect the /proc/lvm entries and so doesn't
activate the Volume Groups

Expected Results:  rc.sysinit dtects /proc/lvm entries and activates Volume Groups

All of the kernel bits are turned on (have been for a while), but lvm didn't
work properly w/ mkinitrd. That's fixed in mkinitrd 3.4.20.
