I (and others) have enocuntered a pretty nasty raid bug that crashes the 
machine running current 4.1.x stable. It seems a commit is available but 
not yet in 4.1.6.

(commit 49895bcc7e566ba455eb2996607d6fbd3447ce16)

Seems like it is in 4.2 tho.

Not sure it's worth patching 4.1.6 with this if 4.2 is imminent - but it 
may be - it kills the machine and has caused some file lossage.

Tobias - what do you suggest best way to proceed - skip as 4.2 is out or 
patch 4.1.6?
