This one got fixed in 2.5.34-bk6 and is ok in 2.5.35.

One may boot from a root RAID-1 now, if it don't
need to resync.

The kernel dies within a minute or two
if it has to resync a sufficiently big
raid-1 though - by freezing solid. Sometimes
with several 0-order allocation failures first.
this is a known problem.

This is made a bit worse by the way later
kernels also makes shutdown segfault so
the RAID's cannot be shutdown correctly.

My solution is to always boot 2.5.7 for
a correct 5-min sync after shutdown, before testing
a new kernel. :-/
