I'm using kernel-2.6.0-0.test11.1.13 (plus lvm2 et al) from rawhide
and ext2online 1.1.17 from
http://ext2resize.sourceforge.net/download.html, but it won't work.
Even if I create an ext2 filesystem with 4MB in a large logical
volume, ext2prepare it to the LV size before mounting it, it won't work:

# mke2fs -L /l/tmp -b 4096 /dev/all/test 1024
mke2fs 1.34 (25-Jul-2003)
Filesystem label=/l/tmp
OS type: Linux
Block size=4096 (log=2)
Fragment size=4096 (log=2)
1024 inodes, 1024 blocks
51 blocks (4.98%) reserved for the super user
First data block=0
1 block group
32768 blocks per group, 32768 fragments per group
1024 inodes per group

I'd tried an ext3 filesystem before, but it produced the same results.
Even "ext2" in the filesystem mount type passed as argument to mount.
Am I missing anything?  Should I be using a different package for
on-line resizing of ext3?  Or is anything missing in the kernel to
support online resizing?
