I don't know about uncommon, given that I have six machines in this
building with three way RAID-1 for the boot partition, to be sure I can

And since you added "write-mostly" for remote mirrors I do have a few
systems doing >2 mirrors as well. This set of patches definitely will be
in my kernel by this afternoon.
