Maybe it is after all.  I do not know at this moment but I will
try to re-check that.  Not right away, though.  Thanks!
I know that I did check that condition when no dmraid was on initrd,
but this was a side-effect of other issues and I did not pay a close
attention if possibly there was some other point when this disk
was "grabbed".

I am still somewhat baffled what makes that disk "busy" on a system
level even if a dmraid track is correct.
