Ok, that's a good point.
It would be more optimal to get MD metadata versions, rather than to turn
off v1.0/v0.9 completely.

I think it could be possible to determine the MD metadata version of a
device, simply reading the sysfs attribute,
e.g. /sys/block/md*/md/metadata_version.

I'll post a second patchset with the improvement.
