We can, and we should. My initial patch is just the bare minimum; I'd like
Douglas to carry it on, and I am still waiting to meet his Engine counterpart.
Currently, a LUN that was once used as a raw hard disk cannot be used by RHEV;
that's sad.

How about this for API:

   createVG(self, vgname, devlist, options={trashpart_devlist: []})

createVG would honor an optional list of devices (subset of devlist) whose
partition tables should be trashed.
