You have to trick grub-install. Say /boot is on /dev/md0, a raid1 of
/dev/sda1 and /dev/sdb1. Then you can put /dev/sda1 into devices.map,
instal-grub, repeat for sdb1. You might have to change fstab and/or
mtab as well. Can't remeber if that is truely needed.

But grub-install also has some special code for raids. Why it doesn't
work or isn't good enough should be someones TODO. Maybe we could make
that a NM job :)
