mdadm 2.4.1-1 ready for tests

Hi all,

I have finished mdadm 2.4.1-1 and would like some people to look at
it before I upload it, since I made some significant changes (no
more mdrun, for instance (but it's not yet deprecated until
initramfs-tools syncs)).

Here's the changelog:

 mdadm (2.4.1-1) experimental; urgency=low
   * The "I'll kill that maintainer... uh, wait, it's me" release. Sorry for
     the delay, here's the long awaited new upstream release,
     which closes: Bug#318230, Bug#321751, Bug#337903, Bug#352798, Bug#363592,
                   Bug#356153, Bug#271033
     Oh, and we're moving away from that arch nightmare too. Sorry for the
   * Experimental release, because I really don't want to be responsible for
     data loss. Though I am quite sure that the upgrade is painless, I also
     don't have access to an 18 drive RAID 10 with multipath on s390 or similar
   * We now make the /dev/md* devices in postinst unless /dev/md15 exists (no
     longer checking for /dev/md0), or unless devfs is in use. If udev is used,
     /dev/md15 will only exist in complex setups, so the devices will be made
     in /dev/.static by MAKEDEV, which is not really a concern. I opted against
     unconditionally calling MAKEDEV until #367407 is fixed so as to preserve
     custom permissions or owner settings. This also acknowledges the NMU
     closes: Bug#310247, Bug#299623
   * Patched some of the code to make mdadm honour /etc/mdadm/mdadm.conf over
     /etc/mdadm.conf (see NEWS).
   * /sbin/mdrun has been deprecated and replaced by calls to /sbin/mdadm;
     a proper deprecation warning is in place (see NEWS).
   * Fixed a couple of typos in the mdadm(8) manpage; thanks to Reuben Thomas.
     closes: Bug#345669, Bug#345667
   * Updated Debconf translations:
     - Vietnamese by Clytie Siddall (closes: Bug#323950)
     - Czech by Miroslav Kure (closes: Bug#360290)
     - Russian by Yuri Kozlov (closes: Bug#361116)
     - French by Eric Madesclair (closes: Bug#323988)
   * Added new Debconf translations:
     - Swedish by Daniel Nylander (closes: Bug#333486)
     - Dutch by Frans Pop (closes: Bug#344714)

You can download it from incoming.debian.org for the next 11 hours,
then from experimental (after a little while):

  apt-get install -t experimental mdadm


Comments welcome.
