Description of problem:
I had a couple Redhat guys at Linuxworld assure me that RHEL4 would
support growing ext3 filesystems online ;)

If I execute something like:
lvextend -L +16M /dev/vgroot/lv_tmp
ext2online /dev/vgroot/lv_tmp

I get:
ext2online v1.1.18 - 2001/03/18 for EXT2FS 0.5b
ext2online: ext2_ioctl: Inappropriate ioctl for device

ext2online: unable to resize /dev/mapper/vgroot-lv_tmp

The man page for ext2online says CONFIG_EXT2_RESIZE needs to be
enabled in the kernel configuration.   It does not show up in
/boot/config-2.6.8-1.528.2.10.


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
e2fsprogs-1.35-9.5 / kernel-2.6.8-1.528.2.10

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
lvextend -L +16M /dev/vgroot/lv_tmp
ext2online /dev/vgroot/lv_tmp

Actual Results:  ext2online v1.1.18 - 2001/03/18 for EXT2FS 0.5b
ext2online: ext2_ioctl: Inappropriate ioctl for device

ext2online: unable to resize /dev/mapper/vgroot-lv_tmp


Expected Results:  Filesystem should be 16MB larger.

The kernel portion of online resize did not make it into B1, as we
found a problem with the patch just before freeze.  It should be
enabled in current rawhide kernels, though, and is planned to be fully
supported in RHEL4.
