This is an incorrect change. The kernel does *NOT* autodetect
superblock format. I'm you really think it does, please point me at
AFAICT, mddev_t->major_version is used to indicate the superblock format. That
form is used in add_new_disk(), but not in autostart_array().
It looks like the autostart_array function is set up to only work with the 0.90.0
superblock format, but the add_new_disk function calls the proper
superblock-handling form using super_types to switch between the type 0 and type
1 superblock formats.
OTOH, I could be wrong.

You corrected the wrong part of this line.
"One" at the beginning should be "Once".
Oops. Missed that.
"uninitialised" is correct - in the Locale of the author.
Do we go for Queen's English, American English, or what? Just so I can set up the
spell-checker in the proper locale.
