The internal log is located in the middle (by block number) of the
filesystem by default. Where this is physically located on disk
depends on your device layout.
If you really have a RAID0 stripe, then the log will be striped
across all the disks in the RAID0 stripe.

We never read from the log, so I doubt the log is responsible
