I also have this problem with a /data raid...  The boot process tries to mount 
my raid0 parition (/data) BEFORE it mounts /usr, so it drops me to a maint.

Confirmed, but it's actually worse than that.  raidstart tries to run after
having mounted only /, which means it will fail if /usr is on a separate
partition, regardless of whether it is itself a raid partition.  The only
solution I found was to repartition so that /usr was on /.
