thanks for this info

It seems that it is dangerous to use this:

Unless you have patched your kernel with the ext2online patch it is
necessary to unmount the file system before resizing it. (It seems that
the online resizing patch is rather dangerous, so use at your own risk)

How can I be sure that fedora kernels are patched like this?

They are....assuming you're not running an ancient FC. And if you don't
like to use the command line, the GUI for resizing works just fine online,
all the time.
No one can guarantee the actions of another.
