Trying to resize xfs filesystem without libguestfs-xfs installed fails with no warning or error message.

Description of problem:
If I have an image that is being expanded, and I want to expand an xfs filesystem in the process, but libguestfs-xfs is not installed, the expansion fails witb no warning or error message.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Double the size of a working image into a new image file, then try to resize both the vdisk and the root filesystem.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. qemu-img create -f qcow2 -o preallocation=metadata <new_image>.qcow2 32G
2. virt-resize --expand /dev/sda2 --LV-expand /dev/centos/root <old_image>.qcow2 <new.image>.qcow2
Device image expanded, filesystem specified does not change.
Device image expanded, filesystem also expanded.
Resolution is to install libguestfs-xfs but should give error or warning if not installed.
Since virt-resize 1.31.21 there is a new option --unknown-filesystems to tweak the behaviour of virt-resize when resizing filesystems without a known method to expand them (possibly because the tools for it are missing).
The option takes three values:
- ignore: do nothing, not even print any message
- warn: do not expand, but print a warning message about the unexpanded filesystem
- error: error out when trying to expand a filesystem without valud method for it
The default is "warn", so it means you will see a warning by default.
Ah, I missed this was already reported as bug 1204063.
