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.
