Not offline, online... resizing the ext2/3 fs while mounted... it
works rather well with ext2fs but I haven't yet tried or seen
reference to using ext2online on a mounted ext3fs... looking through
the reiserfs src now to see if i can find reference to
online-resizing as well... what I really am looking for is LVM with
MDs and a journaled filesystem with online AND offline resizing
capability... preferably both extension and reduction abilities, but
i can live with only extension for the time being.
