Joe, it escapes me, why this glitch holds you back from doing anything with
11.1? Well yes, it's nagging to boot into the rescue system, mount the devices
by hand, edit the offender, call mkinitrd, and reboot..

Even a newly created RAID 1 will fail without the fix.

But being as alarmed as you are, how about doing the upgrade, wait for the
"will reboot in 10s" message, cancel it, apply attached patch, call mkinitrd,
and all should be well.

OTOH, you will only circumvent this issue, even if a fix is committed and
rolled out, if you manually add the correct update repo during the
upgrade/install..

Thus the former approach is still more appealing in my book.
