[linux-lvm] ext3 on lvm2 on raid10

Hi, guys

How is the raid10 chunk size related to LVM2 layout and how do ext3's
"stride" and "stripe-width" parameters depend on LVM2?

In more detail:
I've 4 equal HDDs. My intention is to make a raid10, put LVM2 on top
of it and format the LVM volumes with ext3.

stride and stripe-width values are described in MKE2FS(8), but the
case with LVM is not covered there.

Please, point me to some documentation on the subject or advise me how
to proceed.

Best regards,
