yes, you can extend size of filesystem using chfs command as it was described by bakunin

in the same way you can decrease size of filesystems, you just need replace + on -
but, only JFS2 filesystems on AIX5.3 systems and higher could be decreased with chfs

more info is here chfs Command

POSIX_MADVISE(3)					     Linux Programmer's Manual						  POSIX_MADVISE(3)

NAME
posix_madvise - give advice about patterns of memory usage SYNOPSIS
#include <sys/mman.h> int posix_madvise(void *addr, size_t len, int advice); Feature Test Macro Requirements for glibc (see feature_test_macros(7)): posix_madvise(): _POSIX_C_SOURCE >= 200112L DESCRIPTION
The posix_madvise() function allows an application to advise the system about its expected patterns of usage of memory in the address range starting at addr and continuing for len bytes. The system is free to use this advice in order to improve the performance of memory accesses (or to ignore the advice altogether), but calling posix_madvise() shall not affect the semantics of access to memory in the speci- fied range. The advice argument is one of the following: POSIX_MADV_NORMAL The application has no special advice regarding its memory usage patterns for the specified address range. This is the default behavior. POSIX_MADV_SEQUENTIAL The application expects to access the specified address range sequentially, running from lower addresses to higher addresses. Hence, pages in this region can be aggressively read ahead, and may be freed soon after they are accessed. POSIX_MADV_RANDOM The application expects to access the specified address range randomly. Thus, read ahead may be less useful than normally. POSIX_MADV_WILLNEED The application expects to access the specified address range in the near future. Thus, read ahead may be beneficial. POSIX_MADV_DONTNEED The application expects that it will not access the specified address range in the near future. RETURN VALUE
On success, posix_madvise() returns 0. On failure, it returns a positive error number. ERRORS
EINVAL addr is not a multiple of the system page size or len is negative. EINVAL advice is invalid. ENOMEM Addresses in the specified range are partially or completely outside the caller's address space. VERSIONS
Support for posix_madvise() first appeared in glibc version 2.2. CONFORMING TO
POSIX.1-2001. NOTES
POSIX.1 permits an implementation to generate an error if len is 0. On Linux, specifying len as 0 is permitted (as a successful no-op). In glibc, this function is implemented using madvise(2). However, since glibc 2.6, POSIX_MADV_DONTNEED is treated as a no-op, because the corresponding madvise(2) value, MADV_DONTNEED, has destructive semantics. SEE ALSO
