I believe you that there are reports, I just don't understand where
the slowdown could be.  There's no need for it that I can see.

These all say what you've said in words.  This

is a little strange, though -- seems to indicate you're only using 1/5
of the array's space as the md device.

Don't know what to say about that, except that reshape is waiting for
some resource it needs.  I guess mount and reshape could be deadlocked
but that doesn't seem all that likely.

At this point I can't recommend anything because I don't know the
internals.  I think asking Neil is the way to go.  I'd love to hear
what he says!
