Bug#586959: boot fails after install on softRAID because of superblock v1.2

Package: installation-reports
Version: 20100621
Severity: important

Squeeze x86 daily snapshot netinstall CDs and weekly snapshot CD during
install make softRAIDs with superblock version 1.2.
Current Squeeze kernel (2.6.32-5-686) is unable to assemble that kind of
softRAID during boot. That makes installations with /root on softRAID
unbootable. Same situation should be expected with superblock 1.0 and 1.1.
Making /boot separate non-RAIDed partition doesn't help because /root
cannot be assembled.
I was using RAID1, but I guess there's the same problem with other RAID
levels, too.

I suggest to make using of superblock 1.2 optional providing superblock
0.9 as default at least for /boot and /root partitions.
