That's great, but it's not an answer to what has been asked.
Have you tried SSD based software raid on stock kernel and on 
kernel-ml, have you noticed any big difference?

I guess there should be some difference, software raid is not capable 
of TRIM in stock kernel, but I'm also not sure if a newer kernel is all 
that's required, perhaps modifications to mdadm tool are also necessary.
