OK, so more details follow (I am not sure how valuable they are, though).
The command that triggers the BUG is located quite at the beginning of FC6
/etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit, and it's this

[ -x /sbin/nash ] && echo "raidautorun /dev/md0" | nash --quiet

just after this, the BUG I sent you occurs, and nash is killed on SIGSEGV
(this command is executed before any other initialization of
DM/LVM/mapper/whatever happens). strace shows

[ ... ] (boring part stripped)
read(0, "raidautorun /dev/md0\n", 16384) = 21
read(0, "", 16384) = 0
access("/usr/bin/raidautorun", X_OK) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
access("/bin/raidautorun", X_OK) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
access("/sbin/raidautorun", X_OK) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
access("/usr/sbin/raidautorun", X_OK) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
access("raidautorun", X_OK) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
access("/dev/md0", F_OK) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
access("", F_OK) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
mkdir("", 0755) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
access("/dev", F_OK) = 0
mknod("/dev/md0", S_IFBLK|0600, makedev(9, 0)) = 0
open("/dev/md0", O_RDWR <unfinished ...>
+++ killed by SIGSEGV +++

(at this time, udev is already started). Compared to this command, being
run later on already booted system, after all the mdadm, mknod
/dev/mapper/*,etc. stuff has been done).

[ ... ]
2732 access("/dev", F_OK) = 0
2732 mknod("/dev/md0", S_IFBLK|0600, makedev(9, 0)) = 0
2732 open("/dev/md0", O_RDWR) = 3
2732 fcntl64(3, F_GETFD) = 0
2732 fcntl64(3, F_SETFD, FD_CLOEXEC) = 0
2732 ioctl(3, 0x914, 0) = 0
2732 close(3) = 0
2732 exit_group(0) = ?

(and this doesn't trigger the BUG).
