BTW, it is possible to move to lvm2 based storage without rsync.  You could
setup the lvm2 volume and then use dd or ddrescue (better status display and
can be restarted if you specify a logfile) to copy the filesystem at the block
level.  Both would have to be unmounted of course.  Then the filesystem can be
resized to utilize the extra space.

Yes, I know that this means copying the unused portion of the filesystem but
that will probably be faster than making all those stat and ln calls.
