signed off botrh arches. Did not notice any real problem for a while. I
would suggest to not use autodetect in mkinitcpio.conf with software raid
as it does not detect the raid module and the klibc binary (forgot its
name) which detects the filesystem just segfault (for me since .32).

We shouldn't wait that long with the move; our kernel in core has (afaik)
some security issues.
