If all volumes are unmounted, then you can simply remove the
driver and modprobe it again.
# /sbin/rmmod qla2200
# /sbin/modprobe qla2200
I'm assuming your /etc/modprobe.conf file has all options
(SAN paths, etc...) for the card defined.
Once that is done, your /dev/sdb device should be updated to
reflect the new geometry of the storage. Just add the new
space as a new, physical volume, add it to your existing
volume group, etc...
