Description Adam Cetnerowski 2008-01-18 07:57:13 EST
Description of problem:

In the script "/sbin/mkinitrd" the following line 
(line=~1336) "dmraid -ay -i -p \$dmname\"
is added to initrd. 

If the user changes the volume name, he will have to rebuild initrd or the RAID
volume will not be reactivated. 

Suggested change:
If the line is change to:
"dmraid -ay -i -p"

dmraid will reactivate the RAID volume irrespective of its name.
