raidframe stores its size in the raid label which is not affected
by the change to the partition information. But it should be possible
to just initialize the RAID labels again using 'raidctl -I' and force
a reconstruction with 'raidctl -R'.

N.B. nowadays it shouldn't be necessary anymore to have RAID partitions
smaller than the disk, so resizing becomes a bit theoretical.
