As Norberto pointed out, root file system can be inside the LVM. It's
/boot that has to be outside. That said, my own unpleasant and
unfortunate experience suggests that everything essential to
boot/recover the system should be outside lvm since rescue mode is
unable to mount lvm without manual intervention after booting.
