    OK, the patch below (which Linus applied to his tree yesterday) should
    fix the oopses.

    but the patch to edd.S doesn't resolve that EDD believes you've got 16
    devices (I would expect it to report 2, as you have only 2 disks).

    Thanks for the quick testing. Back to the drawing board though for
    this second part.
