Following are a couple of bugfixes for raid10 and raid1. They only
affect fairly uncommon configurations (more than 2 mirrors) and can
cause data corruption. Thay are suitable for 2.6.22 and 21-stable.


[PATCH 001 of 2] md: Fix two raid10 bugs.
[PATCH 002 of 2] md: Fix bug in error handling during raid1 repair.

I don't know about uncommon, given that I have six machines in this building with three way RAID-1 for the boot partition, to be sure I can get off the ground enough to get the other partitions up.

And since you added "write-mostly" for remote mirrors I do have a few systems doing >2 mirrors as well. This set of patches definitely will be in my kernel by this afternoon.
