Anyone have suggestions for fixing the following error:

EXT4-fs error (device dm-15): ext4_mb_generate_buddy:747: group 1, block bitmap and bg descriptor inconsistent: 2616 vs 613 free clusters

after lvresize --size +1G --poolmetadatasize +16M <VG/LV>

I was attempting to increase the LVM-thin data size on storage that was 100%.
