Is there a way to tell how much would be appended when I burn a multi-session disk with growisfs?
Okay I found a way myself.

1) do a dry run and write down the first line in the output, should be like this:

Executing 'genisoimage -C 1350000,1359056 -M /dev/fd/3 -V YULIANSU_BKUP -iso-level 2 -R -exclude-list .exclude.lst.backup -old-root / . | builtin_dd of=/dev/sr0 obs=32k seek=84941'

2) re-run the genisoimage adding -o (output) parameter and replace /dev/fd/3 to /dev/sr0.

3) check the output file size.
