That's not what I'm looking for.  I *do* have LVM physical and logical
volumes on most of my drives, e.g. a volume group on my backup drive.
And I want an explicit call to vgscan to find all these volumes.
Therefore a filter excluding these device is not the solution.

But I dislike all my drives spinning up and having to wait for that when I
simply call vgdisplay vg0 to see how much space is left in my primary volume
group with /, /usr, /var and /home file systems, which are active all time.
