typical mix is somewhere round 8 kB. You can't stop any striping system from
breaking a request into two physical requests, and if you do it wrong it can be
broken into several. This will result in a significant drop in performance: the
decrease in transfer time per disk is offset by the order of magnitude greater
increase in latency.

reasonably small number of fragmented requests with a stripe size between 256 kB
and 512 kB; with correct RAID implementations there is no obvious reason not to
increase the size to 2 or 4 MB on a large disk.
