Something that may help is to use the findsuper program, in the
e2fsprogs sources; it's not built by default, but you can build it by
hand.  Each of the backup superblocks has a group number in one of the
fields, if it was created with a relatively modern mke2fs, so you can
use it to get information like this:

byte_offset  byte_start     byte_end  fs_blocks blksz  grp  last_mount_time           sb_uuid label
       1024           0  95999229952   23437312  4096    0  Thu Dec 10 00:24:39 2009 fd5210bd

The group number information should help you determine the order of the
disks in the raid array.

Good luck!
