What kind of raid card? just out of curiosity... Because I'm guessing
you were using software RAID and not real RAID...

At least, that's kinda what it looks like...

you MAY be able to rebuild a new md1 with those four sd$x2 partitions,
perhaps... though, honestly, I couldn't begin to tell you how.  I stay
away from software raid (assuming that's what you're using)...
