Unless you have the RAID code compiled into the kernel (not modules) and
you are using kernel-based RAID autodetection, the /dev/md* entries are
created by mdadm, not by udev (udev can not create them until the array
is created, and mdadm needs to create the device first to be able to
build the array).
