LVM support for Guix System Distribution

With GNU Guix 0.8.1 and it's distribution there is still lack of LVM support. As I'm probably the only user of LVM, I need to hack support into initrd myself.

Steps I'm planning to take:

  1. Think about how configuration structure should look like
  2. Discuss proposal with upstream
  3. Try to implement it for both non-root mount and root mount

Looking for hackers with the skills:

scheme guile initrd lvm

      After this Hackweek I managed to add support for boot from root filesystem on LVM as the mount is done in initrd. For other filesystems the work is still in progress. These filesystems are mounted after switching root and fails on dependency problems between udev and file systems.

      Let's try again to work on this. It seems that noone else would do it ;)
