Comment 2 Hedayat Vatankhah 2011-11-09 13:40:09 UTC
Thank you for reporting the issue and for the fix. Unfortunately, I don't have any software raid devices. Apparently, md raid devices were excluded due to this bug: http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=273960%3b
Would you please check to see if your patch actually fixes this bug? If yes, I would forward this patch upstream to be included in the next version.

Comment 3 Pavel Lisý 2011-11-09 18:37:08 UTC
I've made new patch which adds only /dev/md* devices and excludes /dev/sda* (and so on) which are parts of md raid devices. I think you can send it to upstream.
