Description G.Wolfe Woodbury 2007-12-21 05:36:15 EST
Description of problem:
  installing rawhide of 2007-12-20, I had /usr on an LVM lv.  I selected to
reduce the size of the lv, and selected to format the "partition".  Anaconda
spent way too much time resizing the lv prior to formatting the newly resized

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install rawhide
2. resize an existing logical volume
3. also select to format the filesystem
Actual results:
  The horizontal "bouncer" ate large portions of the CPU time, while anaconda
was fscking the filesystem prior to resizing.  And all this wasted effort was
done for a filesystem that was immediately reformatted.

Expected results:
   I'd check the format flag prior to doing the resize and skip the fsck if the
result is going to be reformatted.
