Description:
LVM causes kernel oops after vgreduce.
Symptom:
Segmentation fault in 'lvdisplay -v' after 'vgreduce' of a PV that is not the last PV in the VG.
Problem:
Moving PV pointers in lvm_do_vg_reduce invalidates PV index in LE map of LVs.
Solution:
Do not move pointers but set the pointer of the removed PV to NULL and handle holes in the array.
Problem-ID:
7391
