You can do this if nothing is using the slice or any of the space you
want to grow it to, or in some circumstances when something is using
it (for instance if it has a filesystem on it, and you're using a
recent-enough Solaris (which probably means 8 sometime) then you can
grow the FS with growfs once you've grown the slice).

In 10 you may need to set NOINUSE_CHECK to turn off some checking.
