Disk setup really sucks

I don't understand all those who say that this image comes with LVM.
I instantiated an new VM this moment just to be sure - US-EAST-1, ami-c2a818aa - no LVM tools, and when installing LVM tools manually (`yum install lvm2`), there are no volume groups detected.
Resizing the disk using fdisk on the live root works, but requires a reboot and feels wrong.

I would recreate the image myself, but I can't attach the drive as a slave to another vm for cloning, and can't recreate the AMI in my Xen setup because the build script for this AMI is not publicly available (or can found, anyway).

Otherwise it's no better or worse than the PV image.
