Unfortunately even rebuilding (converting to linear and back to raid1)
doesn't work.

lvconvert seems to ignore the --regionsize option and use defaults:

lvconvert -m 0 /dev/vg_sys/lv_test
lvconvert --type raid1 -m 1 --regionsize 128M /dev/vg_sys/lv_test

[10881847.012504] mdX: bitmap initialized from disk: read 1 pages, set
4096 of 4096 bits

... which translates to a regionsize of 512k for a 2G volume.
