While the .gitignore patch is no problem, this one is somewhat puzzling.

Do you have an reproducible test case where you can exercise this code path?

It seems more logical if we move flag correctly marked for PV
so is_missing_pv() works - as if it does not - we would have to spread test 
for  pv->dev!=NULL  check everywhere, which is not really wanted.

So what we need to check here is all assings of pv->dev needs to handle
MISSING_PV flag properly.
