Putting MD on top of LVM puts in one extra layer.

This layer will have to be traversed for every single access to the
disk.

Actually having a layer is unnecessary.

All that is necessary is to connect the MD to the right disk device
at the beginning when the MD is being started.

The MD is then connected to the disk with no intervening layers.

Both of these suggestions address the problem of getting the MD
connected to the right disk at the beginning, without adding an
intervening layer.
