You were so close !

You've done the public API, and you've done the daemon storage
driver bits too. What is missing is the RPC part which allows
libvirt.so to communicate with the storage driver, which runs
inside libvirtd.  For something as sane as the virStorageVolResize
API, most of this code will auto-generate. So you need to touch

 src/remote/remote_protocol.x
 src/remote_protocol-structs

to define the wire format.

Then, just add the auto-generated dispatcher to src/remote/remote_driver.h
API table at the end of the file.

You need to check add this in, since this API is dangerous in readonly
mode

    if (conn->flags & VIR_CONNECT_RO) {
        virLibConnError(VIR_ERR_OPERATION_DENIED, __FUNCTION__);
        goto error;
    }

I think you'll have a merge conflict if you rebase to latest
GIT, since we pushed a couple of APIs yesterday.
