No, I'm using ArchLinux and all my linux filesystem (including /boot) is
on a LVM partition, I've also debian (wheezy) and fedora 19 and these
two also is completly on LVM partition.

The separate partition for /boot that you've talked is only necessary on
GRUB legacy in the GRUB2 no more need /boot separated. as you can see
(see the warning)

Since GRUB2 can load LVM exists something (either a hack?) that I can do
for NetBSD boot on LVM ?
