Debian initramfs tools used to use mdrun (maybe they still do) that is
horribly broken. There was a time when none of the initrd/initramfs
generators in etch could reliably boot a moderately complex RAID setup
that I've set up. ("Reliable" means continue to boot even if the disks
are physically reordered and/or moved to different controllers etc.)
I hope they are fixed now but I have no desiree to try it.
