[Bug 941874] Re: (fakeraid) root device not activated during boot

OK, no idea if this will help, but when I get thrown into initramfs,
when running 'dmraid -ay', it says the raid volume is already activated,
but in /dev I only have the raided drive (dm-0) and not any of the
partitions (dm-1 and dm-2). Booting from a rescue disk, I have the same
problem and after running kpartx (iirc, kpartx -a /dev/dm-0, I'm not in
front of my pc), the devices appear and can be mounted.

So, if the dmraid udev tool is supposed to take care of running
kpartx... it's not working.

btw, drives are running under "isw : Intel Software RAID" (4x120gb
agility 3s, sda-sdd), so I'm not sure if I'm affected by the lack of awk
and sed hooks as martin pointed out earlier...
