Did you look in to EVMS at all. I am setting up a similar system to
yours...4 stat disk, linux raid, etc. However, I really wanted to use
EVMS and am only partially successful. I have, as of now, been able to
get the EVMS stuff correctly in initrd such that I can complete a boot.
Just curious if you'd looked into EVMS at all and if you had any thoughts.
