Hi,

This series of 6 patches obsoletes patches sent in topic "Changes for using mdadm for isw_raid_member".
All patches were rebased to the version anaconda-11.5.0.42.1.
These patches need pyparted >= 2.0.11 and patch for mdadm which add support for -E --export option.
MD containers and arrays are created in directory /dev/md as links to devices in /dev
Activation of MD arrays is done by adding disks to the array using command mdadm -I.
MDRaidArrayDevice._devDir value was changed to "/dev/md"
MD arrays are visible as HARD Drives, and can be partitioned. MD containers are displayed as RAID Devices.
Support for new kernel parameter iswmd was changed.

This is series of 5 new patches. These patches obsoletes previous patches.
All patches were rebased to the version anaconda-11.5.0.51.1 - commit 874455669aec86557c26f1769f42e8505785b545
Patches adds new class MDRaidContainerDevice for MD containers. MD containers are not displayes in partitioning window.
Support for new kernel parameter iswmd was added in booty.
This patches requires mdadm 3.0 which is not available in rawhide yet. As grub don't open correctly partition created during installation, workaround is needed. For example, for device /dev/md126 anaconda can create partition /dev/md126p1, but grub will try to open partition using device /dev/md1261, so during installation on second console user should create link
in /mnt/sysimage/dev using command: ln -s dev/md126p1 dev/1261, and later for all partition.
