I run a similar setup on many production servers.  On one, for example,
I have four disks.  I create two RAID1 arrays, /dev/md0 and /dev/md1.
Then I create a LVM volume group, adding both /dev/md0 and /dev/md1 as
physical volumes.  Then I create whatever logical volumes I want.  It
works very well.
