If you have e2fsprogs 1.19 then it contains resize2fs.  The deal Ted had
with Powerquest is that resize2fs would become GPL after 2 years or so.

The e2fsadm program can use ext2resize (http://ext2resize.sourceforge.net)
instead of resize2fs.  If you patch your kernel with the ext2online patch,
then you can even use e2fsadm to grow the LV and ext2 filesystem without
unmounting it.
