Yeah, this really looks like another great example of Ubuntu "giving back"
This looks trivial, but will definitely need an OK from the maintainer and
a freeze exception from the release team.
This should be done by a test _inside_ the if statement and not by adding
a condition to the if statement:
if echo $device | grep -q "^/dev/mapper/"; then
[ -f "$dev/sataraid" ] || continue
[ "$dmtype" = multipath ] || continue
Also, the comment just above that code should be updated!
This needs a comment in the code and the grep needs '-q'.

I also miss a cleanup of partman-dmraid, or can that udeb be dropped
completely? If the last is the case then we need a patch for hw-detect so
it no longer gets installed.

Then why do you disable guided partitioning in the partman-auto patch?

I'll give that a try.
P.S. Are you subscribed to the d-boot list or should we keep you CCed?
