Actually I think the problem was that I had not yet reloaded multipathd
configuration, so my underlying devices were still blacklisted according to
multipathd -k"show devices".. but still I had the mpath-device up and
running :) Oh well..

I ran "/etc/init.d/multipathd reload" and then:

# multipathd -k"resize map mpath-resize-test"
ok

But "multipath -ll" still shows the mpath-resize-test device with the
same/old size.. 

What to do/try next?
