I don't see an obvious way to test whether this is "fixed" in M2. There is no
apparent option to install Grub to / on /dev/md3. For boot loader location I
see only:

1-MBR (where I always use standard boot code)
2-"Enable Redundancy for MD Array"
3-Custom Boot Partition

Option 2's help only speaks of MBR redundancy. MBR in my case is not to be
touched. If I try put /dev/md3 in Custom, I get a popup telling me "Selected
custom bootloader partition /dev/md3 is not available any more. Set default
boot loader location?"

IOW, booting from / (on /dev/md3 in this case) is missing from the list, and
not available from bootloader configuration.

If I click on "Boot Loader Installation Details", all I see is a list of my two
SATA devices under "Disk Order".

When I exit "booting", I get a message in red telling me "The boot device is on
software RAID1. Select another bootloader location, e.g. Master Boot Record"
whether or not I have there clicked to enable boot from / partition.

I proceeded after "enabling" boot from /. Upon inspection after first/kexec
"boot" the PBR of /dev/md3 seems to remain empty. Both 'dd if=/dev/md3
of=md3pbr.bin count=1 bs=512' and 'dd if=/dev/sda10 of=sda10pbr.bin count=1
bs=512' produce files full of nulls.
