You mentioned md0 aka a Linux software raid array and therefore do not 
have any 'raid' devices setup in BIOS. The 'raid' bios will not, 
therefore, attempt to do anything on your disk. Otherwise, it would have 
trashed your md0 a long time ago. Please STOP adding comments to those 
bug reports because you have just completely confused the issues. 
#191119 (sorry Xander - missed the part where it says Alvin made the 
comment) has NOTHING to do with what you are currently seeing.
