Building character with Fedora 10, RAID controller, dmraid. Researching it a bit, points to couple of possible bugs in mkinitrd not doing the right thing for dmraid. Reading /sbin/mkinitrd (a bash script) I see this comment.

# I fucking hate shell.
.. and dmraid setup related code

initrd being the critical piece in linux boot sequence, I am concerned, quite. Any code, that is annotated with obscenity, needs a thorough review, chances are, the quality of such code is quite low.

Well, as the saying goes

Linux is free, if you do not value your time
