Here are some notes about my attempt to install Ubuntu 11 on Kingston SV100S2/256G SSD (on Dell Latitude E6510 laptop). Just in case somebody else finds it useful.
I have Googled around for information about SSD disk optimization for Linux and found that there are two main things to consider: partition alignment and filesystem options.
It appears to be important to (try to) align disk writes by the boundaries of SDD erase block size. This  article talks about LVM volumes alignment.
Most tutorials out there seems to blindly assume SSD erase block size is 128KB, unclear on what ground. This post  suggest the kind of disk I have features 1MB erase block size. I decided to take use this value.
Finally, I have ended up with the following partition layout, with alignment by 1MB:
$ sudo fdisk -S 64 -H 32 /dev/sdb
Command (m for help): p
Disk /dev/sdb: 256.1 GB, 256060514304 bytes
32 heads, 63 sectors/track, 248074 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 2016 * 512 = 1032192 bytes
Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
Disk identifier: 0xfeb3c9c1
Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/sdb1 1 103 103792+ 83 Linux
/dev/sdb2 104 248074 249954768 8e Linux LVM
Creating LVM physical volume, with its meta-data size set to align start offset of its extents to with 1MB boundary.
$ sudo pvcreate --metadatasize 994k /dev/sdb2
Physical volume "/dev/sdb2" successfully created
$ sudo pvs /dev/sdb2 -o+pe_start
PV VG Fmt Attr PSize PFree 1st PE
/dev/sdb2 lvm2 -- 238.38g 238.38g 1.00m
Create physical volume group and logical volume.
$ sudo vgcreate e6510-ssd1 /dev/sdb2
Volume group "e6510-ssd1" successfully created
$ sudo lvcreate --size 32G --name root e6510-ssd1
Logical volume "root" created
Finally, create a file system, with stripe width set to 1MB (256 x 4K blocks). "Resize" parameter limits the maximum size your filesystem can grow live, it is optional parameter, just saves a few megabytes.
$ sudo mke2fs -t ext4 -E stripe-width=256,resize=250G /dev/e6510-ssd1/root
To make use the instructions above, you will need to use alternative installer CD which lets you interfere with partitioning/filesystem creation process.
