I've been using it for a few months on a machine that does LOTS of
I/O.  I just installed processor #2 this week, and the md stuff seems
to work fine even in SMP mode.

Make sure you read the docs a few times.  Also, before you put
anything important on your striped volume, reboot, and make sure that
you can remount it and still read it.  "mdcreate" and I have had a
battle or two in the past :-)
