Regarding a fix for this bug -

multipath_component_detection parameter is not considered when lvm scans for PVs.

This patch should fix that issue.  It ensures that the multipath_component_detction parameter
from lvm.conf is considered before checking for duplicated PVIDs and ignoring them if they are
multipath components.

I have built the patch and verified that it works.

I tried to create a pull request on, but I couldn't as I don't have access.

If I am granted access to the lvm2 github repo, I can create a PR for this patch.

Kindly let me know how to proceed with this.
