the backwards-compatible support for mdadm in 'mkinitramfs' creates an
incomplete '/conf/mdadm.conf' file for an initrd.
It uses 'mdadm --examin --scan', which in newer versions of mdadm (eg
2.4.1-5bpo1, ie from backports.org, but I strongly assume that this
as very similar for the official testing version) won't create any
'DEV' lines, therefore an initrd later won't find the RAID disks
when trying to scan for them.
Adding 'DEV partitions' to the 'mdadm.conf' file fixes this, so pre-
pending this in the 'mdadm.conf' generation in 'mkinitramfs' would help.

initramfs-tools - tools for generating an initramfs
Closes: 380649 383730 383908 384063
initramfs-tools (0.76) unstable; urgency=medium
* debian/control: Tighten klibc to 1.4.19-2 for fixed nuke. (closes: 383730)
* mkinitramfs: Only hard code root when root arg got passed.
* init: Parse /proc/cmdline for rootfstype, initrd-tools did it too.
* init: Parse /proc/cmdline for rootdelay.
* scripts/local: Use eventual rootfstype and rootdelay info.
* initramfs-tools.8: Add more docs about boot args, s/2.6.15/2.6.17/.
* scripts/functions: Simplify parse_numeric() by arithmetic calculation,
instead of working on it's representation. Thanks to tarski.
(launchpad.net/21759) Much more elegant than the 0.58 version fix.
* mkinitramfs: Parse rootraid for sarge compatibility and pass the info
to the initramfs if etch mdadm is not yet installed.
* scripts/local-top/mdrun: Assemble the root raid first before mdrun.
Thanks martin f krafft <email@example.com>. (closes: 383908, 384063)
* update-initramfs: Check if /etc/kernel-img.conf is readable,
before attempting to parse also check for the right field.
* init: Check for root=/dev/nfs. Parse ip kernel command line for nfsroot.
Drop undocumented and not compliant nfsopts.
* scripts/nfs: Add ip parsing conforming to Documentation/nfsroot.txt.
Use the nfsroot bootparam in combination with eventual ip provided
device or server-ip. Do minor code cleanups. Both items based on patches
by Vagrant Cascadian <firstname.lastname@example.org>. (closes: 380649)
* Set urgency medium due to large number of serious bug fixes.
