I've got a similar problem to the one reported earlier in June by Peter
I've got a hardware-raid5 that I've extended (/dev/sdk), and after
extending it, I get the kernel to recognize the new size.
But pvresize is still using the old size. I'm pretty convinced that a
reboot will solve this issue for me, but isn't there a way
of solving this without rebooting?
$ cat /sys/block/sdk/size
# blockdev --getsz /dev/sdk
# pvresize -v -d /dev/sdk
Using physical volume(s) on command line
Wiping cache of LVM-capable devices
Archiving volume group "vg01" metadata (seqno 123).

Resizing volume "/dev/sdk" to 3906166400 sectors.
Updating physical volume "/dev/sdk"
Creating volume group backup "/etc/lvm/backup/vg01" (seqno 124).
Physical volume "/dev/sdk" changed
