FWIW, in my all-NetBSD Xen system, I create all my LV root filesystem
disk images from dom0 (I have a script that makes the filesystem and
puts all the NetBSD tarballs in there and does some configuration
without user intervention), then my domUs use the fictitious disklabel
that just fakes an all-disk partition. I explicitly avoided LV
partitioning for basically the reasons you've encountered :-)
