     I do this all the time to get disk space for domUs.  I have
never had any problems, except when trying to rename LVs (I just
don't do that any more).  The biggest issue is that GENERIC doesn't
have, or didn't have, dm(4).  There is nothing inherent in LVM that
indicates you should have multiple PVs, it's just another way of
slicing up a disk.
