This is strange because both lvm2 and readline come from [core], but
the Arch team didn't screw it up as far as I can tell:

    $ ldd "$(which lvm)" | grep readline
    		libreadline.so.7 => /usr/lib/libreadline.so.7 (0xb759e000)

EDIT: Ignore the above. I've read Moritz' email.

I would give lvm what it wants. I would extract libreadline.so.6, either
from `/var/cache/pacman/pkg/` or from https://archive.archlinux.org
(I assume you'd be able to connect to the Internet from the recovery
shell, or at least mount an external drive with the required file). Then
place it in `/usr/lib/` along libreadline.so.7 and reboot.
