I am aware of that. It is just that a previous message in this thread
implied the ioctls from mdadm had already been dealth with (i.e. should
not be issuing warnings anymore).

After it has been tested enough in mainline, please make sure to direct
all patches related to this issue to stable@v.k.o.
