I don't actually want to do this, but after expanding the XFS 
partition size  (using xfs_growfs )  of a Logical Volume and looking 
for the "BACKDOWN" information, I couldn't find a simple explanation 
for shrink the partition back down.

Is this possible with XFS, or does one need to use XFS Dump to 
migrate the data to another partition?
