Description of problem:
pvresize-size failed to resize an LVM physical volume.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
The reproducer is:
$ guestfish -N disk:10G pvcreate /dev/sda : pvresize-size /dev/sda 5G
libguestfs: error: pvresize_size: /dev/sda: /dev/sda: Requested size 5.00 GiB is less than real size 10.00 GiB. Proceed? [y/n]: [n]
Physical Volume /dev/sda not resized.
Add -v -x to the command line to see the lvm2 commands being performed.
Actually the problem is not the kernel, but the lvm2 package.
