Yes, I know, dmraid just reads the on-disk metadata.
What I have been talking about is the RAID configuration process in the 
BIOS on the S5000VSA board. As I was told by Eric this should be ISW and 
not DDF1, I guess it is not possible to let the configurator on S5000VSA
board create DDF1 format? So, I am wondering why this RAID is detected
as DDF1, if it should be ISW. But this will have to answered by the 
reporter (I do not have this hardware so I cannot do tests personally).

Currently I have the output of dmraid -s -ccc available:

I cannot do this as the problems on the reporters side appear already at
installation time. So what I have is a core file from the reporter and
I have to analyze this with the same package and debuginfo versions
as on the installation medium.
Currently I got:
1. core file
2. Output from 
   dmraid -r -vvv -d
   dmraid -s -ccc -d
3. strace from the failing command
   dmraid -s -ccc -d ddf1_4c534920202020201000005500000000330adc0c00000a28
4. dumps of the metadata with dmraid -rD

I can provide these on request if interested (directly).

Thanks,
Matthias
