I have never tried it, but if it is anything similar to veritas VM, then
this command will only restore the metadata on to that disk / volume group.
Please try it and send the distro the results, as it will be very useful.

Under veritas, there is a way to rescue the volume which has been removed,
but ofcourse, that works only if the volume was mirrored to start with.
