I'll assume that also means that applying the patch is reasonable.

In our case we aren't using raid5; how ever we are using raid to mirror
two root partitions. Your explanation to Andrew indicates the problem should
only occur when using raid5. So applying the patch should be only have the
effect of making it now possible to use raid5 with dm-crypt. Since we are
currently running raid with root encryption it feels like it's better to
include your patch.
