The issue is not rebooting gcc119 AIX VM or wiping out the AIX /home
filesystem. To expand the VIOS partition I need to reboot the
hypervisor host and all of the AIX partitions, which is more difficult
to schedule. Also, there does not appear to be a mechanism to squeeze
down the physical volume on the disk array and carve out new devices.

Thanks, David
