Add USE=thin when building lvm2

Postby MosquitoBait » 18 May 2016, 16:22

The lvm2 in sysresccd (as of at least 4.6.0, and subsequent changelogs don't mention any lvm2 changes) does not include thin volume support. This prevents mounting any lv in a vg that contains thin volumes. Emerging a new version of lvm2 with USE=thin fixes this, so it seems the kernel was compiled with thin support, but it was left off of lvm2.
