Subject[PATCH 000 of 11] md: Introduction - assort md enhancements for 2.6.18
The follow 11 patch are assorted tidy-ups and functionality
enhancements suitable for 2.6.18 when that opens up.

More interesting patches are:
5 - merge raid5 and raid6 code into a single module. There is a lot
of common code here, and there are advantages in uniting it all.
8 - allow a linear array to be expanded while online by adding an
extra drive.
10- A new flavour of 'raid10' which matches one of the layouts
supported by 'DDF' - an industry standard raid metadata format
which might be supported one day. This will need an updated
mdadm to experiment with.
