okay, I'm trying to add an interal bitmap to see how much it slows down things:

[root@Emperor ~]# mdadm --version
mdadm - v3.2.3 - 23rd December 2011


[root@Emperor ~]# mdadm --grow --bitmap=internal /dev/md2
mdadm: failed to set internal bitmap.


[root@Emperor ~]# mdadm --examine-bitmap /dev/md2
        Filename : /dev/md2
           Magic : 00000000
mdadm: invalid bitmap magic 0x0, the bitmap file appears to be corrupted
         Version : 0
mdadm: unknown bitmap version 0, either the bitmap file is corrupted
or you need to upgrade your tools
