In RDO, remapping Cinder loopback to LVM volume

I have a mostly vanilla RDO install with the exception that I followed the guides on the RDO website for setting up single Ethernet interface with floating IPs on the external network.

I would like to point Cinder (and later other storage) to an LVM volume which I can resize according to need. The default RDO Packstack install creates Cinder storage on a loopback volume in /opt. I've already created and formatted the new LVM volume which will host the Cinder data and copied the existing Cinder data from the loopback volume to the new LVM volume. I've not been able to figure out how I might point the various components of Openstack, maybe only Cinder is necessary, to the LVM-based storage.

Can someone walk me through that process or just point me to the relevant docs?
