Purpose This mini-howto is intended to help others avoid the frustration I went through when updating kernels and having my root partition on a RocketRaid mirrored drive. I was using an USB-bootable Clonezilla live on my first data move and obviously was planning to use it for the second one too. There are several other calls to this function, but this was the only one that needed the extra NULL. This is how it looks on my dmesg: The biggest problem seems to be, that it doesn’t build on any reasonably modern Linux.

Have you had the opportunity to test this on a newer kernal? The constant RAID-verify -runs made me want stop using it.
