Well, for me its not a false alarm, sort of.  Mine fails to start and
then works later on or after I restart lvm, sort of iffy here.  This is
what mine looks like:

Setting up the Logical Volume Manager . . .
File-based locking initialisation failed
*Failed to setup the LVM       [!!]
* Error: lvm failed to start

After all that, it's downhill sort of.  Me, I get that with or without a
init thingy.  I'm on Gentoo kernel 3.2.11.  I'm using lvm2-2.02.95-r1.

From what I found, it does this because / is mounted ro.  It can't write
the locking file.  I thought those were in /var but . . .

Also, If I restart lvm after it boots, it starts fine and all the lvm
stuff shows up.  Maybe this one isn't just me.  o_O
