Same problem here since around last Friday. Since many things related to
boot were changed around that time (mdadm, initramfs-tools and cryptsetup,
which still FTBFS in most arches) I was waiting to have cryptsetup upgraded
before further checking, but this seems indeed to be mdadm problem.
Downgrading mdadm from 3.1.2-2 to 3.0.3-2 fixes the problem.
By the way, I'd tag this problem as RC.
