RHEL5 uses old dmcrypt code which is stable but has known limitations. The last change in RHEL was backporting suport for XTS mode. Backporting of some performance changes is almost impossible (if it easy I perhaps tried that long time ago). Also please note that this is exactly where RHEL customer requests helps - and there were no such requests. So other things get priority. So if you are using CentOS my advice is simple - try to upgrade to CentOS6 and test it. It should be in some aspect better but still database performance over dmcrypt can have problems. Setting nr_request will not help btw, this is different problem.
