I have used LVM on / for years without any problems... Okay, not true, I
did have problems with Gentoo, but only because the default Gentoo
initrd had to be hacked to activate LVM. And using LVM with the Ubuntu
installer a few years ago was a tiny bit tricky. But those are distro
problems, not problems with the technology.
