LV Status can also be "suspended", so there's already some variation in
that field (which is why these free-form lvdisplay fields should be
avoided.)  But I agree, it's probably best to leave lvdisplay alone for
historical purposes and add anything new using just lvs fields.

Zhao, I think we should revert that commit, and come up with a new word to
describe this thing (which also needs a clear definition), and report it
in lvs.
