In the partitioner is possible to create an LVM VG on top of partitions and disks (without partition table) alike. I'm not sure if we have a test-case using that functionality or if all our tests define the LVM always based on partitions.

If we don't have it, it would be nice to add it.

Automation is out of scope of the ticket, we should create follow up ticket, we have AY test on 64 bit already, as of now this is already good. But we should come up with some scenario which would be beneficial to automate.

## Acceptance criteria
1. Functionality is tested manually using TW, Leap 15.1, SLE 15 SP1 which contain changes
2. Draft test plan for the feature is created
3. Follow up ticket for the automated test is created depending on the outcome of the test plan

## Suggestions
Things to test and not limited to:
1. Partitionless physical volume plain lvm with btrfs
2. Partitionless physical volume plain lvm with ext4
3. volume group on multiple partitons
4. volume group on multiple disks
5. 1-4 with encrypted lvm (for VG)
6. 1-4 with encrypted lvm and encrypted partitions in VG
7. VG with a disk and lvm partition
8. Activation of the disk partitions by installer when having a disk with installations from 1-7
9. At least perform one autoyast re-installation (install -> clone system -> install using created profile), use testing strategies here not to repeat this step for 1-8
10. Whole disk as a single partition
11. Special disks (DASD, ZFCP, iSCSI)
12. Repeat some of the suggestions using Expert Partitioner in the installed system

AY scenario is already automated: https://openqa.suse.de/tests/latest?arch=x86_64&version=15-SP1&machine=64bit&test=autoyast_disk_as_pv&distri=sle&flavor=Installer-DVD
But it's only 64bit, worth checking on other setups.
