lvscan often times out during boot
I'm not 100% certain that mountall is the problem, but seems a good place to start.
I have some LVM partitions on my laptop, and some filesystems on there are mounted through fstab:
/dev/schroots/isos /iso ext4 defaults,relatime 0 0
Often (1/3 of the time?) boot hangs, and after a minute or so I get a message saying something about watershed and lvscan timing out. Then it proceeds to mount everything readonly.
Other times boot proceeds with no problem.
