This issue can trigger easily in Centos7.3, if meet two factors:
1. SELINUX in enforceing mode
2. mdadm try to create new gendisk.

if disable SELINUX or let it in permissive mode, issue disappear.
As Jens has revert that commit, it seems boot normally, actually
this is no diretor created under /sys/kernel/debug/bdi/, though
has no effect on disk workflow.

As james said before, "debugfs files should be treated as optional",
so kernel give warning here is enough.

So there are 2 ways to fix this issue:
1. Add proper SELINUX policy allow mdadm create dir at debugfs
2. mdadm don't create gendisk directly, first mdadm trigger a kwork and
wait it done, let kwork create gendisk.
A possible change for MD like following:
