FYI, reiserfs can also be resized online (at least, the current
2.4-beta versions) w/ a command like the following:

mount -o remount,resize=[NEWSIZE] filesystem

I can't speak authoritatively about the missing 2G, but you can
compare the LVM's allocated size (use vgdisplay to see how many PEs
are allocated and what their size is) to the size of the filesystem
reported by debugreiserfs.

Also note that some earlier versions of reiserfs had some issues which
resulted in inaccurate results from du; however, I don't know of any
issues offhand which affected df's results.
