Resizing Logical Volumes In LVM2 Without e2fsadm

The joys of using LVM are many and varied.

Today I had a need to add 2Gb to a Logical Volume used by one of the Xen virtual machines. Tab completing e2fsadm only gave me e2fsck. How strange... revealed that e2fsadm only exists in the lvm-10 package. Further googling revealed that e2fsadm for LVM2 is coming "Real Soon Now®".

In the mean time there is a relatively straight forward work around for the lack of e2fsadm in LVM2.
