Raid degraded check too early

Bug Description


on every boot i got the "do you wish to start with a degraded RAID" warning message.
After skipping the message and starting with the degraded RAID everything looks fine. There is no rebuild running and the raid state is "clean".

I could fix this by adding a wait condition to the degraded check like described here:

So from my point of view the execution of the degraded check is not very usefull as it is now. I dont know if I have understood the problem correectly but instead it should run after the RAID was started successfully (if this is the problem).
