linux-3.1-2 fails to boot on my computer. Lots of error messages get printed to the console, one of which is:
note: md0_raid [255] exited with preempt_count 1

and some of the error messages mention something about scsi but fore scrolling past. then the system stops doing anything.

the root filesystem is on an mdadm raid partition and normally works. 

I have these relevant kernel options in the grub boot configuration:
root=/dev/md0 rootfstype=ext4 md=0,/dev/sda7,/dev/sdc8 raid=noautodetect

downgrading to linux-3.0.7-1 lets the system boot again.

any ideas or suggestions on how to fix this are welcome.
