Your problem is that these extra slots (N:0) are flagged as failed
(S:9) and this confuses md.c.

If you get mdadm 1.3.0 and apply the three patches that can be found

and then stop the array and use:
mdadm --assemble --update=summaries /dev/md5 /dev/sda9 /dev/sdc9

then it should fix things up for you.
You will need to do a similar thing for all of the arrays.
This will be difficult for md2 as it is 'root'. You will need to boot
a rescue disc to fix this one.

I have not idea how it got the failed flag.
