Rebuilding a Raid 1

Dmraid does still work, but installing requires a bit of knowledge of how
it all works and a little tinkering (especially on Ubuntu where the
installer is a pile of shit).

Unfortunately only the isw stuff has been implemented in mdadm so far and
there are no plans to support anything else.

The problem with dmraid is that the only people who use it are dual booting
windows, and unfortunately any dev that delves in is usually going to go
all the way to Linux at some point so their reliance on dmraid dies and
they move on to more interesting projects.

I was helping maintain the Ubuntu stuff for a while but my main machine now
uses a RAID0 through mdadm as I have no use for dmraid.
I still try to test where I can but upstream never accept any of the
patches we proposed so the dmraid source archives available are outdated
and broken for the lesser used metadata types.
