Source: mdadm
Version: 4.1-3
Severity: important

Patches recently landed upstream to support raid0 layouts. These
layouts are new and important because the upstream kernel accidentally
started using a new layout for multi-zone devices starting in
3.14. To avoid corruption, the 5.4 kernel (and many stable kernels) will
now refuse to assemble existing arrays unless they have explicitly defined
which layout they are using. While a default layout can be specified
via the kernel command line - or a module parameter - an updated mdadm
is required to set this value in the array itself.

thanks

hey Felix,

I've prepared and tested the following debdiff for mdadm. Before I
do a QA upload, I wanted to check if you have an imminent upload to
your ITA (#924367) with which it would interfere.

Hi Dann,

Thanks and for asking. Please go ahead.

I haven't rebased since before your last QA upload, so it makes no
difference at this point.

Kind regards,
Felix
