It was a problem.... Mmmm. In 2.3.14 it still is.

2.3.13 and the 2.3.14-pre release gave the same problem. I don't
know about earlier releases. Shall we bring this up to the linux kernel list? The MD users should have noticed it too. Indeed there was VERY heavy I/O
on the stripes.

BTW: 2.3.14 needed a little extra patch wrt the 2.3.13 LVM patch. Some-
body will have ported it too, if not say so, and I'll mail you the diff.

Best regards,
