use percentages for specifying lv size

Bug #1498180 reported by Andreas Piesk

Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone

Bug Description

it's not a bug, more an improvement.

The patch enables the use of percentages, see 'man lvreate', option '-l, --extents LogicalExtentsNumber[%{VG|PVS|FREE|ORIGIN}]'.
i did not include %PVS because myvmbackup has no option to specify a PV for the snapshot.
i regularly use 10%ORIGIN, very handy IMHO.
