[alpine-devel] lxc-create and mkfs

I just tried to create ubuntu lxc container:

> lxc-create -l DEBUG -o lxc-log -n trusty -t ubuntu -B lvm --vgname vg0 -- -d

and got this in log:

> lxc-create 1414851260.358 ERROR bdev - Error creating filesystem type ext3 on /dev/vg0/trusty

Checking with lxc sources I saw that lxc tried to use mkfs and I don't
have it. I don't find a package which would contain mkfs. Is there one
or is this a compatibility problem?

I got forward by making a symlink mkfs->mke2fs
