I assume that this won't return anything but what do you get when you run
gzip --decompress --standout /boot/initrd.img-non-working | cpio
--list | grep mdadm
gzip --decompress --standout /boot/initrd.img-non-working | cpio
--list | grep '/md/'

I have an mdadm'd install of sid in which there isn't anything
mdraid-related in "/etc/initramfs-tools".

Does "/usr/share/initramfs-tools/hooks/mdadm" exist?
