This is true and all. But it's easily worked around by keeping /boot on
a non-LVM partition.

I use a LVM setup and it works flawlessly. /boot on ext2, and / on LVM
ext4. And you can't really complain at a 5-6 second boot time with the
aforementioned setup.

There's absolutely no reason to remain on old style DOS partitioning
setups on Linux.
