If by "operating system", you mean that the filesystem isn't any bigger,
then all you need to do is re-size the filesystem (using 'resize2fs') to
take advantage of the new space.

So all your PE's are allocated, and I think you're all set to do the
filesystem re-size.  I don't think you want to be messing with pvresize.
