I don't use either systemd nor encryption so I can't test this service
file. If the people using these things with lvm2 require this service
file, then I don't object in adding it.  I assume that it was tested.

There's a new upstream release for lvm2.  Later today, I intend to
push it in testing along with this new service file as no one has
posted any objections.
