I would like to know if it makes any sense to specify sunit & swidth
parameters as mount options to XFS filesystems sitting on a Linux
software RAID-1 array, as advertised here [1] or there [2].

I'm asking, because it seems that chunk_size does not matter in a RAID-1
context, nor do stripe units; or do they?

Any tip would be appreciated,
