Am I the only one noticing that the raid456 module and all its deps are 
getting dragged in when only raid1 is desired?

# lsmod |grep raid456
raid456               120937  0
async_xor               7233  1 raid456
async_memcpy            6209  1 raid456
async_tx                9793  3 raid456,async_xor,async_memcpy
xor                    17737  2 raid456,async_xor

# cat /proc/mdstat
Personalities : [raid1] [raid6] [raid5] [raid4]
md0 : active raid1 sda1[0] sdc1[2](S) sdb1[1]
       64128 blocks [2/2] [UU]

md1 : active raid1 sda2[0] sdb2[1]
       10490368 blocks [2/2] [UU]

I see that it was added to mkinitrd for recovery scenarios. Which is fine. 
But does it *always* need to be loaded?
