both states raid is broken for more complex setups.

According to my earlier mail about assembling raid arrays i wrote a new hook 
and install file.
It uses mdassemble.static from mdadm tarball which is smaller than 
mdadm.static and does the assembling job and loading of the needed raid 

How does it work:
- If a an array is defined on users system /etc/mdadm.conf, the file will be
  added to initramfs and used for the assembling things.
- If no array was defined it falls back to commandline assembling and a
  madm.conf file will be created on the fly during bootup. 
  Old command line syntax wasn't changed, uuid support is added 
  (eg. md=0,0900878d:f95f6057:c39a36e9:55efa61b)

thoughts on it?
built x86_64 package and other files are here:
Tested normal raid 1 setup with and without mdadm.conf modified.
Not tested yet uuid assembling from commandline and partitionable raid!
