Log message:
	Add skeleton for lvmetad udev rules - 69-dm-lvm-metad.rules.
	Why using the order 69:
	- Storage processing in general happens in 60-persistent-storage.rules,
	including the blkid call that adds some usable information we can use
	for filtering and speedup (these rules are part of upstream udev and
	the order is preserved on most distros)
	- There's still some other storage-related processing done after
	60-persistent-storage.rules in general. These might add some detailed
	storage-related information we might use to filter devices effectively
	(e.g. MD udev rules, ...).
	- We need lvmetad rules to be processed before any consumers can use the
	output - so the metadata cache is ready soon enough (e.g. udisks rules).
	- There's no official (upstream udev) document about assigning the order,
	so this number is chosen in best belief it will suit all scenarios.
