I think this software RAID is definitly the problem.
(I'm very sure this is not supported in 2.2 and I don't know if it is in
recent kernels supported, but I don't think so)
You should use hardware RAID (transparently for the software) or the
software RAID functionality in the linux kernel, but i don't think that the
performance gain will be big at all (without special applications).
