Then don't bother with LVM, create a few separate partitions with your
Dom0 LVM, and mount those *directly* as /dev/sda1, /dev/sda2, etc. in
the DomU. LVM is cool and neat and wonderful, but it's also pretty
flipping pointless to put on top of an existing LVM system. Like
gzipping a file twice, you don't gain much and it costs you management
and computational overhead to deal with.
