dmraid 1.0.0.rc15-1


I'm going to upload dmraid 1.0.0.rc15-1 in unstable.

Relevant changes for d-i:

- Build dmraid shared library for both standard and udeb packages. It will
likely be used in the future by udev.
- Create new packages, libdmraid-dev, libdmraid1.0.0.rc15,
libdmraid1.0.0.rc15-udeb respectively
- Install /sbin/dmraid-activate[1] also in dmraid-udeb package
- debian/patches/10_exit_code.patch: Fix exit-code[2] for "No RAID disks" and
"no block devices found" errors (LP: #300825)

Is all of that ok?

[1]dmraid-activate is a script to bring up dmraid arrays, checking whether all
raid disks for the array are present before doing so. Dmraid itself has no
option to not bring up degraded arrays.

[2]The installer greps 'dmraid -c -s' output for "No RAID disks" in various
places to determine whether any SATA RAID disks are present. This is a poor
approach because it depends on human-readable output. Fixing the exit-code, the
installer could use it to detect SATA RAID disks.
