I know that I reported some dmraid+LVM flakiness back in F7 test cycle
that wasn't resolved then.

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=234719
and
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=234724

Unfortunately, I finally made the decision to proceed with a stable
installation and abandon using dmraid and don't have spare drive space
to test this with any more.

I'll see if I can scrounge up some drives to do some testing again ...
but it seems that dmraid is an issue that gets attention in the dev
cycle right at the point where it is too late to do anything about it
because folks hope it will just go away.
