I've just upgraded a box running 13.1M4 to RC2 - before I did so, I
noticed that mdadm was running, for some strange reason. So I stopped
and disabled it. After upgrading (zypper up), mdadm was back up and
running, despite:

# systemctl status mdadm.service
Loaded: not-found (Reason: No such file or directory)
Active: inactive (dead)

I'll just deinstall it, but should it really be so persistent?

# zypper rm mdadm

14 packages to remove.
After the operation, 14.5 MiB will be freed.
Continue? [y/n/? shows all options] (y): n

I guess mdadm is a pretty critical component :-), but do I really need
to rename the binary to prevent it being started?
