Removing mdadm is okay, no hotplug devices use it and it only required
if you have a software RAID device/setup.
>From the bug report that you posted, this is a new "feature" that gets
you to make sure the mdadm.conf file is the same as the out of a mdadm
scan. This causes the failure of your initrd creation as initrd builds
depend on mdadm being happy (because you can include modules related to
mdadm to be built into your initrd to bring up hardware devices before
mdadm tries to create md devices) before they are built.
(sorry, just hit reply before thinking.. must be from my intense three
day session on "forgetting all about work") :-}
