Uh, this is md, not dm, you don't need very special HARDWARE (basically only
2 HDDs, which do not even have to be identical, and you might even get away
with only 1 for testing, with absymal performance of course), you do need a
special setup though, which means repartitioning, and so isn't practical to
test on a production machine which isn't already set up that way.
For non-boot devices, loopback works. You only need the hardware if you
are testing boot time capabilities (which, admittedly, is the far more
important aspect of testing for this package).
