salt mymachine lvm.pvcreate /dev/sdb1,/dev/sdb2
salt mymachine lvm.pvcreate /dev/sdb1 dataalignmentoffset=7s
salt.modules.linux_lvm.pvdisplay(pvname='', real=False)

Return information about the physical volume(s)

pvname
physical device name
real

dereference any symlinks and report the real device
