Under 2.4.x there are two "tunnables" on /proc, namely:
/proc/sys/dev/raid/speed_limit_min
/proc/sys/dev/raid/speed_limit_max

Both are expressed in KB/s. The latter sets the maximun array
reconstruction speed for RAID-1,4,5 (taking available IO), and the former
sets the minimun "guaranteed" reconstruction speed.

At least on my 2.4.4, "minumun speed" is set to 100 KB/s, and "maximun
speed" equals 100000 KB/s, but it seems that array reconstruction always
operate at the minimun guaranteed speed, 100 KB/s.

So echo "5000" > /proc/sys/dev/raid/speed_limit_min should help
determining whether this speed limit is causing the problems described.
