ext4 resize/fsck



Horsing around with ext4 again...on F-10.

This time a fsck was required after both an offline shrink and an online grow. Why?

Then a bit later, I shrunk the lv to 4G, and then mounted the filesystem (just for fun), and finally online expanded the fs into it.

Is this all normal? I can suppose a fsck is required after a shrink. But after an online expand, seems odd.

Prior to this little experiment, the lv/ext4fs were at 6.7G. Shrinking brought it to 1.7G (with 1.1G in use). And obvously, I ended with 4G even.
