I believe this is possible with the linux raid10 driver... rather than just
being a raid-0 of raid-1 devices, it instead cycles through the devices
putting down first a block, then it's mirror.  In this way, it can use an
odd # of devices (including just 3).  Check it out:

with five devices, it would look like:

D1 D2 D3 D4 D5
A1 A1 A2 A2 A3
A3 A4 A4 A5 A5
