Interesting suggestion, certainly shouldn't hurt. But AFAIK the device
mapper runs in the kernel and it's going to do it's "own thing" before I
get a chance to hdparm it.
That's why I'm most interested in determining what (if anything) a LVM
configuration does ... especially in situations where it detects a
bad/repairable configuration (if that even makes sense).
Regardless, I'll do some experimenting - not sure if there are going to
be any limitations with hdparm and configuring my disks via a USB adapter.
