Re: A Nasty md/raid bug

Ahh, so one would be moving the copy of mdadm in /sbin that would have otherwise been called on shutdown, potentially activating the bug, but the mdadm in initrd/initramfs that allows the system to start up will still be present, allowing progress as normal.

Makes perfect sense, thanks for that -- puts me a little more at ease with the 3 boxes that uname -a tells me are running a kernel right in the "danger zone."

Thanks again.
