  I misread what Bryn had said at first as well, but re-reading it, he
means that RAID1+0 does better at recovery than RAID0+1, which does make
sense.  In RAID0+1, depending on how many mirror arrays you have and how
smart your RAID controller is, you could have twice as many disk
accesses happening during a disk recovery.  The URL that you pointed too
doesn't really talk about performance during a recovery anyways.
