Now I finally had a chance to test this. It turns out to work great! It's not as fast as a non-raided linearly allocated LVM volume (about half of performance without getting a fat tail of high read/write response time). So there is a price for redundancy but that is worth it in my application. It's now up there in the same magnitude.

Thanks a lot Guoqing! You really helped me a lot here. I'd also like to thank John Stoffel for valuable input.
