The problem with this is that even if the kernel is in .99 pre-release
state for several weeks _nothing_ has been changed in it about the RAID
stuff still, so a lot of people using 2.2 + raid 0.90 patch (eg. RedHat
users) _cannot_ change to and try 2.3.99, because their partitions would
not mount.

It seems to me, that if we are talking about widening the testbase for
2.3.99, this is the most important item on Alan's todo list.
