Description of problem:
When installing FC3T1 and using software raid1, if the installer
finishes before the mirror sync's, then when the reboot occurs the
system will fail to boot.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Start install of FC3 T1, create a big software raid 1 array
2.let installer install a typical 2.2G install
3.let the installer reboot as soon as installed
Actual Results: System refuses to boot
Expected Results: System would boot normally.
Can anaconda be modified to know when the raid is sync'd and then
allow a reboot, i.e at the end of the install put a notice on screen
showing the raid is syncing.. please wait...
Work around is to look at the log as it installs and wait for the
mirror to be synced then reboot.
This is a kernel bug. The kernel shouldn't mark an array as finished
syncing on boot if it's not actually.
