You really want to CC the current mdadm maintainer for your NMU, done 
with this mail; 'my package "mdadm"' is a bit ambiguous in this case 
as well.

Unlikely, given that your proposed NMU is FTBS when building in an 
unstable environment because of http://bugs.debian.org/625392.

[ On a very personal note, I'd like to see http://bugs.debian.org/633880
  fixed/ applied myself, while not critical for Debian's current kernel 
  versioning, the patch has been accepted upstream[1] post 3.2.2. ]
