Aha.  I did not have the imagination required to consider that such
commands would be issued before the operation was sccessfully completed.
It seemed to me quite obvious that the space would be released only
after the shrink or move was complete, but if that is not the case, it
seem quite unsafe to trust LVM to handle discard commands.

Happy hacking
