How do you format a logical volume using a "quick format" instead of a "full format"

I have a large volume (1TB+) and don't want to wait for the full format to complete. Is there a way to do a fast or quick format of the volume?

You mean the mkfs/newfs command?

You have to wait... the filesystem needs to be created properly before you can use it.
