[arch-general] [arch-dev-public] Mkinitcpio replacement with Dracut

I now understand why this works with mkinitrd - it's because this
approach does not assemble the array until -after- the pivot root - and
the hostname is now the real hostname and this matches what's in the
raid superblock.

dracut attempts to assemble the array(s) before - in this case the
hostname is the fake hostname.

In neither case is /etc/mdadm.conf included - tho nkinitrd approach its
not needed.

I need to do more work ... perhaps test with the --madadmconf flag when
building the initrd is next step.
