Johannes,

I agree with Peter, there is a 180 second delay in the code in an "if" block just before the suggested location for the patch. The comment above this delay says it is to ensure there is enough time for an external device to start should the root file system be on an external device. I changed this 180 second delay to 30 seconds for my testing.

I think it would be reasonable to put the mdadm patch before this delay also. The delay is OK if you are watching the system boot as it will grab your attention and remind you that you may have a problem.

Cheers,
Ken
