Thanks tpowa,

  I think there is some bad information in archboot FAQ. dmraid development is
currently active (see: dm-devel at redhat.com). So is it just the Fedora patchset
that stopped development? The dm-devel list is active - todays topic are
"multipath patches 1-9"

  I'll try for myself, but since I have nvidia fakeraid chipsets that I have
used with Arch for the past 4 years, my only option is dmraid because mdraid
cannot read chipsets other that Intel. Currently the 201311 Arch install is
failing to boot, so I'll have to drop back and try and earlier one. (I'll start
a new thread on the failure)
