That's what I used several times. That's on a file server doing
kernel.org/debian.org/... rsync mirrors. Those where added one by one,
each time linked with at least one (for debian.org, this reads 4)
extending sessions...

For me (LVM1 metadata on 2.2.19-rcX patched to run with lvm2 userland +
device-mapper), resize2fs just "worked" with ext3. However, LVM version
should be irrelevant (sp?) wrt. to a (non)functional resize2fs. For me,
it did it's job.
