[virt-tools-list] p2v and linux software RAID



I've got a bunch of machines I'd like to migrate to virtual machines,but
they are all running software RAID.  I found this bug:
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=465587 but wanted to check
on the status.  I found that the live CD for p2v has mdadm on it, so I
can start the RAID manually from tty2, but I can't figure out how to get
p2v to redetect the drives (and I'm not sure it will even detect the
RAID devices if I start them).   

I was wondering, what would it take to make this work?  I could split
the drives, and change the partition type from FD (RAID autodetect) to
83 (Linux).  I could then edit the fstab to look at a single drive
instead of an md device.  Would that do it or does RAID write something
else to the disk that would throw p2v off?   I'd *REALLY* love it if p2v
would just detect and use the RAID. 

The bug mentions that Rich has no hardware to test this on...I've
gotboxen o'plenty, and am willing to test if that helps.
