add a partition resize step.  even so, this only works if the

I never partition LVM "virtual device", I used different LV. So there is no problem to resize any of this partitions.
About the additionnal step, I don't really see where it is a problem.
So to confirm, rather than making /dev/xenvg/domudisk and doing:

disk = ['phy:/dev/xenvg/domudisk,xvda,w']

and partitioning /dev/xenvg/domudisk in the guest, you'd make (for example):


and configure it like:

disk = [
