This is mostly a problem with some older cards that focused on RAID-5
performance, and RAID-10 was an afterthought. On many of these cards
(older PERCs for instance) it was faster to either use a bunch of
RAID-1 pairs in hardware with RAID-0 in software on top, or put the
thing into JBOD mode and do it all in software.
