it is somewhat safer not to specify the size to resize2fs and let it
simply use the device's size.

otherwise, you expose yourself to slighly different interpretations of
'25G'.  not too likely, but can you be sure that 24.78G is exactly the
same number of bytes to LVM and resize2fs?

No I can't be sure. That's what I was worried about. Do you think it's an issue? I guess I could not specify the size, however when I want to shrink a disk for a customer, then this becomes a bit trickier, as I have to resize2fs first and then lvresize. What would I do in this case?
