[linux-lvm] Problems(?) with pvresize


I've got a similar problem to the one reported earlier in June by Peter Daum.

I've got a hardware-raid5 that I've extended (/dev/sdk), and after extending it, I get the kernel to recognize the new size. But pvresize is still using the old size. I'm pretty convinced that a reboot will solve this issue for me, but isn't there a way
of solving this without rebooting?

$ cat /sys/block/sdk/size

# blockdev --getsz /dev/sdk

# pvresize -v -d /dev/sdk
   Using physical volume(s) on command line
   Wiping cache of LVM-capable devices
   Archiving volume group "vg01" metadata (seqno 123).
   No change to size of physical volume /dev/sdk.
   Resizing volume "/dev/sdk" to 3906166400 sectors.
   Updating physical volume "/dev/sdk"
   Creating volume group backup "/etc/lvm/backup/vg01" (seqno 124).
 Physical volume "/dev/sdk" changed
 1 physical volume(s) resized / 0 physical volume(s) not resized
