And if you do it offline, you'll have to do a full fsck first, or
resize2fs won't touch the partition.
Any time I'm doing something that major to a filesystem I kind of expect
it to be time-consuming. An exception is ZFS, which was intentionally
designed to make filesystem creation and resizing a trivial operation.
(But the Linux implementation of it doesn't offer very good performance,
last I heard.)
