Description

LSAC(v2)
This collective update for mdadm provides the following features: * Add md_monitor 4.16 (FATE#313624), with fixes included from bnc#787826, bnc#770885, bnc#789202, bnc#787819 and bnc#789535 In addition, the following changes for issue reports are included: * allow --incremental mode to add an old device as a spare if policy permits (bnc#773010) * allow IMSM arrays to be assembled even if platform information is not visible (bnc#785581) * mkinitrd-boot.sh: If multipath is in use, md is always on top of it. Therefore, the root is always an md device (bnc#786526) * fix SIGSEGV when there is an error during --create (bnc#766368) * fix up device reporting in --monitor mode * select the correct device when sending a "FailSpare" event (bnc#764916) * report the "timeout" flag set by the kernel (bnc#763402) * enhance "mdadm --detail" to report which "set" each device in a RAID10 is a member of, in case where that makes sense * allow devices to be re-added to a failed array. Thus if both legs of a RAID1/RAID0 are removed, it is still possible to put one back (bnc#746717)
