comment mkfs.ext4 is taking hours to complete on 4 TB RAID 5
Indeed, it was the raid rebuilding that was making it drag. In fact i had to wipe out the disks with dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sd{a,b,c,d} before raid could be properly resintalled. It was insisting in reading existing blocks on the disk/mess with mbr/screwing linux reinstal before i did this. Not even mdadm --zero-superblocks fixed it.

comment LVM snapshot keeps changing file timestamps
it's giving me a mount error "already mounted" if i give that option. besides how would the timestamps be updated if it's read only?

but the underlying filesystem is changing cause the tables are unlocked... thats the all purpose of having the snapshot, to avoid table locking for more than n seconds
