LVM is not a filestem and is not aware of the filesystem you will  
install on it.

I've installed xfs filesystem over lvm with the same instructions as  
for ext2.

Only the tolls to resize the ilesystem are different.
Some filesystems needs to be mounted, other to be unmounted.
i.e: you can reeeeize an xfs only if t is mounted and you cannot  
schrink it, only growing is avalable.
