The blk-availability initscript/systemd unit that gets called at
shutdown/reboot and which in turn calls the blkdeactivate is already
used in RHEL 6.4 onwards and also in Fedora 18 onwards. However, for
Fedora, you need to enable the systemd unit explicitly at the moment
(systemctl enable blk-availability.service). To have it enabled by
default, the distro-wide default systemd configuration needs to be
edited which is controlled by systemd-preset file (I hope F19 is going
to have this enabled by default finally).

As for any other distros, it's up to the maintainers in that distro to
make use of the new script - I haven't looked if they started using it
or not. But upstream already provides it since lvm2 v2.02.98.
