[linux-lvm] Moving a PV to a new, larger, disk.

  Is it possible to use dd/dd_rescue to simply copy a PV to a new disk
  that is slightly (16MiB)larger?

  The old pv is on /dev/hdb1 and the new disk is /dev/hdc and is
  unpartitioned so far. How would I proceed to make this work?
  This might seem odd to do as I could perhaps use pvmove, but pvmove
  requires the whole vg to be present in the system, right?
