Bug#505111: Proposed (naive) patch for mdadm RAID auto-assembly in rescue mode

This is why I provided /usr/share/mdadm/startall to do that if the
user so desires. In my case, calling it would have caused the same
problems, but I wouldn't have even thought about calling it. :)

I agree that fixing this would endanger RC2, especially since
I don't have a true solution. However, documenting this would
basically require us to say "refrain from the use of rescue mode to
heal RAID problems."
