Why would you need LVM for any FS?
- Ability to easily resize partitions to meet changing needs. This
applies to root as well (ever had to blow everything away because root
needed to be larger for an upgrade?).
- Ability to easily migrate to new storage. I haven't used this with
Linux LVM, but I have migrated Tru64 AdvFS filesystems from one set of
drives to another without having to shut down; combined with on-line
filesystem resizing, you never need to shut down for storage
