No, what we're saying is that the bug in 191119 is something completely 
different to what is being reported, (and indeed, 191119 is in no way a 
Ubuntu bug, it's just simply fact that without the windows proprietary 
drivers, hard drives on those controllers will be seen by the os as 
individual HD's and not part of an array, and making any change to the 
HD, including installing the bootloader, will break it. deal)

Until Andrew and Alvin get that through their heads, it's difficult to 
have any meaningful discussion or even able to triage their bug report 
properly, since it's completely different and unrelated.
