Description of problem:
If I attempt to bring up a raid device that's not listed in
/etc/mdadm.conf, I have to specify -m (or --super-minor). That's
fine. However, it's not fine that it complains about super-minor
entries for unrelated devices that are listed in /etc/mdadm.conf.
# cat /etc/mdadm.conf
ARRAY /dev/md8 super-minor=8
ARRAY /dev/md9 super-minor=9
ARRAY /dev/md10 super-minor=10
ARRAY /dev/md6 super-minor=6
ARRAY /dev/md5 super-minor=5
# mdadm -A /dev/md0 -m 0
mdadm: only specify super-minor once, super-minor=8 ignored.
mdadm: only specify super-minor once, super-minor=9 ignored.
mdadm: only specify super-minor once, super-minor=10 ignored.
mdadm: only specify super-minor once, super-minor=6 ignored.
mdadm: only specify super-minor once, super-minor=5 ignored.
mdadm: no devices found for /dev/md0
It doesn't matter whether it finds devices or not; the warnings are
printed before it searches for them. I don't have any inactive raid
devices atm to show the output, but I've done that before.
