lvmlockd  does not care about state of LV.

This used to be achieved through clvmd code - but such code is no longer 
available with 2.03 branch.

The assumed solution is - the user is supposed to write an engine on top of 
lvm2 using some 'clustering' solution  and and orchestrate this work himself
(i.e. in this case run  'lvchange --refresh' on other hosts himself
somehow in-sync)
