Running disk_total_space on a system that is using LVM it will return completely 
incorrect data.
For example on a machine with result of "df -h" as follows:
Filesystem               Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/mapper/vg-vg_root    99G   47G   47G  50% /
tmpfs                     32G     0   32G   0% /dev/shm
/dev/sda1                194M   65M  120M  36% /boot
/dev/mapper/vg-vg_backup 400G   33M  400G   1% /var/tmp
/dev/mapper/vg-vg_mysql  950G   81G  870G   9% /data

on this setup it will always return 32G.

We get similar result on second machine with "df -h":
Filesystem              Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/mapper/batty-root  258G  217G   29G  89% /
none                    4.0G  208K  4.0G   1% /dev
none                    4.0G     0  4.0G   0% /dev/shm
none                    4.0G   88K  4.0G   1% /var/run
none                    4.0G     0  4.0G   0% /var/lock
none                    4.0G     0  4.0G   0% /lib/init/rw
none                    258G  217G   29G  89% /var/lib/ureadahead/debugfs 

where it will always return 4G.

At first that it was because of outdated version of PHP, original tests were 
with PHP version 5.3.27 and 5.3.6, but then I was able to reproduce it on my 
testing box with Gentoo and PHP 5.4.17.

I cannot reproduce, tested with
PHP 5.4.19 / RHEL-6
PHP 5.5.3 / Fedora 19

As this function is a simple wrapper other the statvfs (or statfs), I don't think of a PHP bug.

What is the option used in the test call ?

df with parameter "-h" changes the output data from bytes to more human readable 
-h, --human-readable
	      print sizes in human readable format (e.g., 1K 234M 2G)

I was asking for the option given to the disk_total_space call.

Director inside LVM share which we want to measure

I means which "exact" value for directory option.

If you use "/dev/mapper/batty-root" which is only a file (ok, a special one) it will report about space in /dev (so 4G)

If you use "/" it will report about space in /
