  libvirt fails to start correctly because LVM is not ready

Status in “libvirt” package in Ubuntu:
Status in “udev” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Some times, one of the KVM guest failed to start. I've 3 guest, two
  started OK and one failed (the two times the same has failed). After
  rebooting the host two times, the KVM guest started OK, but this is a
  server and found too risky this behavior. The host server is running
  "Ubuntu 11.04 Server 64bits" and libvirt 0.8.8-1ubuntu6.5

  The two times that failed, I've found this on syslog:

  error : virSecurityDACSetOwnership:125 : unable to set user and group to '105:115' on '/dev/vg_default/lv_robot-pv0': No such file or directory

  The LVM device is on a software raid. Maybe this is taking too long to
  come up?

  FYI, running "aa-status" (after the reboots) gives me:
  apparmor module is loaded.
  9 profiles are loaded.
  9 profiles are in enforce mode.
  0 profiles are in complain mode.
  4 processes have profiles defined.
