OK, then I misunderstood.  I read your email to say that you chould not
find a way to reduce the size.

Reducing home in LVM would just make ununsed space available to LVM,
visible using vgs.  This unused space chan then be allocated to other
partitions using lvresize on this partition.

You might want to check if you really need space on /dev/, it seem like
the wrong partition to extend.
