Speculation - this may be related to the kernel config which has
for arch kernels and i use a different name (saplinux)

In either case, in the boot logs the hostame shown before the pivot root
is that default as compiled into thekernel - but after the switch root
the actual hostname for the server is used.

Since raid uses the real hostname (cat /proc/mdstat for example shows
the real hostname on the raid server) - that since the hostnames doesn't
match. Before the switchroot the raid is assembled but at md127 instead
of md0 - after the pivot root all hell breaks loose as there is no md0
only md127.

Clearly dracut must be used for raid - so whats the right way to do this?
