Subject: [PATCH 8/8] lvmdevices: add deviceidtype option

When adding a device to the devices file with --adddev, lvm
by default chooses the best device ID type for the new device.
The new --deviceidtype option allows the user to override the
built in preference.  This is useful if there's a problem with
the default type, or if a secondary type is preferrable.

If the specified deviceidtype does not produce a device ID,
then lvm falls back to the preference it would otherwise use.
