1. Give the password for root maintenance like it says, verify that /dev/md0 
exists. Does devfs use the same name or does devfsd need to make the symlink? 
It is quite some time since I used devfs(d) so I don't remember the 
nomenclature for md devices off the top of my head. Or perhaps some other 
devfs related problem?
2. Are the md partitions marked "autoraid" as partition type in the partition 
table ? If yes then the kernel can initialise the array, if not then you need 
to use the mdadm tools to initialise the array at boot, that might be why the 
mdadm init script is failing, because the config file is empty or invalid.
3. the failure of the mdadm script is causing the root fsck to fail for some 
reason? 

You might have checked some of these, I don't know that from reading your post 
and I haven't read your original post just voicing the concerns I saw from 
your most recent post.
