Careful reading of the documentation made it clear that this is a 2-step
process.  Expanding the partition (which I did with parted) is only the
first.  Then I had to expand the btrfs FS.  Using btrfs 4.7.3 (that came
with Debian 9) finally worked.  "btrfs filesystem resize max /mnt" did
it.  It only works on mounted partitions.
