Description Joe Keller 2005-06-02 14:15:46 UTC
Description of problem:

When attempting to remove several devices from a md group using mdadm I get an 
OOPS.  The problem only appears on systems with SATA drives and not IDE 
drives.  Using the latest 2.4.21-32.0.1 kernel doesn't fix the problem.  If I 
do a sleep(5) in my script after "mdadm --remove" then the problem goes away.
