In hindsight and after reading the docs, I'm no longer convinced
(of my last change, I mean). Both RAID0 and 1 use chunksizes we
should be aligning to...

I was led to think this was a linear array, rather than a stripe.
What I really wanted to catch was the linear case, theres no point
aligning that to anything. Looks like there's several other RAID
types we need to consider nowadays too from looking through a 2.6
include/linux/raid/md_k.h and drivers/md/Kconfig.
