I have a DRBD configured with external metadata, which has so far only 
been set up on one node.  By my calculations the external metadata is too 
small (by either the exact or approximate formulae in the docs) for the 
data block device.  DRBD has dealt with this by restricting the size of 
the resource to the maximum size permitted by the metadata.  All very 
sensible, hurrah.

Can I now just lvextend the external metadata LV to allow me to drbdadm 
resize the resource to its full size?
