Suggested fix is two-fold:

1) Call clean_method() at the beginning of partman-auto-lvm/autopartition-lvm, as is done in partman-auto/autopartition and partman-auto-crypto/autopartition-crypto. This should solve the issue for swap partitions but is not enough for ESPs.

Patch attached for the partman-auto-lvm part.

Subject: [PATCH] Call clean_method again

The call to clean_method was lost with commit cfc6797f.
As a result, if existing swap and EFI partitions on other disks were marked
used (which is the default), swap partitions will be used (and get new UUIDs,
which is bad if they belong to another system) and any EFI partition on another
disk may be used instead of the newly created one (#1034812).

This patch fixes the issue for swap partitions but fixing the issue for EFI
partitions also requires a change in partman-efi (same as #1034208).
