Just to repeat this (and then I shut up :-), in my case pvcreate found a
obsolete and unaccessible signature somewhere in the middle of a disk
that didn't have a partition table and looked empty to everyone involved
when it was given to d-s-s.  The disk did not contain a xfs partition,
just a random, left-over signature that happened to be at the right
place for the partition that d-s-s has created.

Because the current behavior of d-s-s in this area feels more like an
accident than design, and I had assumed it was unintended.
