30. By Dustin Kirkland  on 2008-11-06

* Fixes for LP: #290885, backported from Intrepid to Hardy
* Backport functionality to enable booting degraded RAID from Intrepid to
  Hardy
* debian/control: these fixes require initramfs-tools >= 0.85eubuntu39.3
* debian/initramfs/init-premount: enhance the init handling to allow for
  booting a degraded RAID, and add the appropriate fail hook
* debian/mdadm-udeb.dirs, debian/mdadm.config, debian/mdadm.postinst,
  debian/po/*, debian/install-rc, debian/mdadm-udeb.templates:
  partman/install/debconf boot-degraded-raid configurability
* check.d/root_on_raid, check.d/_numbers: installer script to determine if /
  or /boot is on a RAID device

debian/initramfs/init-premount: Make sure the script exists when it is called
with mountfail.

28. By Luke Yelavich on 2008-02-05

* Create init-premount hook script for the initramfs, to provide
  information at boot, if the root device is not functional.
* Tightened initramfs-tools dependency.

27. By Scott James Remnant (Canonical) on 2007-12-12

* Merge from debian unstable, remaining changes:
 * md activation:
  - We now have a single udev rule for both the real system and the
    initramfs, since doing things differently there will only result in bugs
    and confusion.
  - This rule runs "mdadm --assemble --scan --no-degraded", automatically
    activating any non-degraded device as their components are detected.
  - Drop the mdadm-raid init script, since this does the same thing.
  - Also drop mdadm-startall which uses the mdadm-raid init script, and its
    associated sgml file (thus dropping the build-dep on docbook-to-man)
  - Simplify the configuration, since we always autostart all devices so do
    not need to specify any required root devices, etc.
  - Drop the deprecated mdrun entirely.
  - Since udev autostarts arrays, much of the initramfs script can be
    dropped.
 * Install a new udev rule at 65 which runs vol_id on clean raid arrays.
   This will cause lvm, etc. to be run (since there is vol_id information
   present for the enclosed filesystem).
 * Depend on initramfs-tools, specifically a version that doesn't ship
   the mdrun script. This way we can clean out a lot of the upgrade handling
   from the initramfs hook.
 * Just get initramfs to load the modules for us

Install 65-mdadm.vol_id.rules into the udeb so that we have UUID
symlinks in the installer.

25. By Scott James Remnant (Canonical) on 2007-07-11

* Merge from debian unstable:
  - various Debian and Ubuntu changes dropped in favour of the changes
    outlined below.

* md activation:
  - We now have a single udev rule for both the real system and the
    initramfs, since doing things differently there will only result in bugs
    and confusion.
  - This rule runs "mdadm --assemble --scan --no-degraded", automatically
    activating any non-degraded device as their components are detected.

Rename 70-mdadm.rules to 85-mdadm.rules

23. By Ian Jackson on 2007-02-12

Specify --no-degraded argument to mdadm in initramfs; this
can be overridden by setting MD_DEGRADED_ARGS to some nonempty value
(eg, a single space). This ought to fix race problems where RAIDs are
assembled in degraded mode far too much. (LP #75681 and many dupes.)

22. By Ian Jackson on 2007-02-06

* Provide udev rules for md devices, to run mdadm -As.
* Rerun local-top in initramfs at relevant points when md devices seen,
  from udev. (Instead of the normal rule, above.) This is a bit
  heavyweight but at least it means that all of the existing logic for
  deciding which arrays to activate should still work.
* Revert 2.5.6-7ubuntu2. This udev-event-based approach is the correct
  fix.

21. By Tollef Fog Heen on 2007-02-06

Make sure to call udevsettle in the initramfs script so devices have a
chance of appearing.
