serial console log from failed boot with initramfs

Description of problem:
Booting with ext2 /boot on raid1 md0 and ext3 / on LVM on raid 1 md1 fails and drops to maintenance prompt.  The problem appears to be md0 (/boot) is stopped soon after it is started.  Additionally rc.sysinit appears to be run twice.  (Console log attached.)  The same problems do not occur using initrd.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Given /boot on raid1 md0 and / on lvm on raid1 md1, boot
Actual results:
Boot fails and drops to maintenance prompt.
Some boot messages are repeated.  (see attached serial console log)

Expected results:
System boots.

Additional info:
I tried using device UUID vs super-minor in /etc/mdadm.conf.
I tried using fs UUID vs /dev/md0 in /etc/fstab.
All combinations result the same way.

 /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit: line 343:   631 Segmentation fault      /sbin/mdadm -As --auto=yes --run

I blame it on mdadm :)
Comment 2 Doug Ledford 2009-11-05 14:29:38 EST
What version of mdadm was on the system, and are you still seeing this or has it been resolved since this report was filed?
Comment 3 Allen Kistler 2009-11-09 02:23:51 EST
The current version on the system is mdadm-3.0.2-1.fc12.
The problem appears to be resolved.
