A report from pgCon 2013
The LVM HOWTO at tldp hasn't been updated for several years.
> I think that the LV size should be larger than the FS size by 2 x the LVM physical extent (PE) size. Is that correct?
No. Where did that idea come from? LVM doesn't reserve any space *inside* the LVs it creates! The filesystem can use the entire LV if it wants to.
