It's a valid question. Although I'm curious about the use case. The only time
I've partitioned an LV rather than directly formatting it, is when using the LV
as a backing store for a qemu/kvm VM via virsh/virt-manager. However in that
case, to access the partition map and activate the individual partitions before
mounting them, I used kpartx -a.
