Bug description:
  I use two 2TB Enterprise WD Disks on a Intel Server Board SK1200KP
  with E3-1220L CPU.

  I created a container array for IMSM metadata.
  mdadm --create --verbose /dev/md/0 /dev/sd[c-d] --raid-devices 2 --metadata imsm

  Then I created an array based on the imsm container.
  mdadm --create /dev/md/1 /dev/md/0 --raid-devices 2 --level 1 -c 128 -z $((1836*1024*1024))

  Then I tried to access /dev/md1 using parted and the kernel panic occured.
