Bug#218728: autopartkit: Should make larger LVM volumes when possible

Package:  autopartkit
Version:  0.63
Severity: important

At the moment, the LVM logical volumes created are gived the minimum
size by default.  The reason is simply that the code to scale the
logical volumes relative to the size of the volume group is missing,
and that it was easy to use the minimum size in the code.

Using the minimum size make it harder for system administrators using
the installed system, because they often will need to increase the
size of the partition.  This is really annoying when the file system
used do not support online resizing.

There is some code to scale the non-LVM partitions based on the size
of the hard drive, and I want the LVM code to use the same algoritm
when scaling logical volume sizes as well.
