Resize and cold migration are the same flow under the covers, the only 
difference being a resize has a new flavor while a cold migration does 
not (and for the libvirt driver you can't cold migrate to the same host 
like a resize).

I don't think we have a reference doc on the low-level resize / cold 
migration flow like we have for live migration [1] (we should add one 
though, I could probably sketch it out pretty quickly if someone can 
throw it into the docs). I did find this pretty old blog [2] that might 
help - note it's from 2014 though so parts of it might be inaccurate by now.
