But it doesn't apply to JFS under AIX or XFS under IRIX.  I must admit,
I found being able to grow both of those, live, rather handy on a couple
of servers I've managed.  In the case of XFS under IRIX, the xfs_growfs
man page states that "the filesytem must be mounted to be grown."
I can't imagine why that must be the case.
