It needs to be unpartitioned, and also it will complain if there is
any partition of the LVM type (0x8e) anywhere on the drive. You can
easily change that back once the kernel is upgraded and the RAID
established, though. Then you can also extend the last partition so it
uses all the free space (delete/recreate - as long as the new partition
starts on the same cylinder boundary as the old one this is not
destructive), and finally use pv/vg/lvextend and/or resize2fs to
reclaim all the space.
