I always do it by hand , firts reducing the filesystem to the desired
final size (using resize_reiserfs) and then reducing th LV size to
something larger than the above.

I usually try "lvreduce" with "--test" first, to see the final LV size,
and check if it is larger than the filesystem, and the repeat the above
command once I am sure it will not break anything.
