It's consistent with what I've heard so far. I'm not so deeply familiar with
the LVM2 disk labels to be absolutely sure but if you do pvcreate on a disk,
then simply put a filesystem on it, then it's possible that the part
of the label will be overwritten and thus the checksum will fail.
It is, of course, dependant on the mkfs leaving the header magic intact but
overwriting other parts of it - which I can't make happen here :(
