lvm2-2.02.97-2.el6 and higher contains code that supports auto-activation feature and "activation/auto_activation_volume_list" declared in lvm.conf. With this setting, only the volumes that are declared to be activate are actually activated (see also rhbz #817866). If the list is not declared, all volumes are activated by default (which is the classic old way).
For this feature to work correctly on boot as well, we need initscripts (the /etc/rc.sysinit and /etc/init.d/netfs script) to call:
vgchange --sysinit -a ay
(instead of former "vgchange --sysinit -a y", the extra "a" in "-a ay" meaning "AutoActivate").
Since lower versions of lvm2 do not understand the new setting/activation scheme, we need initscripts to declare a proper dependency on this new lvm2 version in the spec file as well.
