pvresize will resize the physical volume but not the partition it is in.
I've already shrunk the PV, I now want to shrink the partition.
I have my swap space as a logical volume and hibernating was unreliable
on my laptop (Dell Latitude C.400), i.e., sometimes it would work,
sometimes it wouldn't. I was trying to make space for a dedicated swap
partition to see if that made any difference.
For some reason that escapes me at the moment, I seem to have one
extended partition on my disk with two logical partitions, so the
partition I am trying to shrink is hda6.
I could probably do with starting over again.
Having played with things a bit more since, I'm not 100% convinced
putting swap in its own partition will make any difference.
